Sure, the Leafs still got Kessel, but you could have gotten him, got rid of a player you don't want, and been able to get a potential franchise player, plus two more draft picks which look very promising for the Bruins.
this is such a misconception.
We don't 'Not Want' Kaberle.
We just know he is our best bargaining chip for a trade.
Nothing bad happens if we don't trade him.
Dude, no one in that lineup is particularly adept at moving the puck. Chara-Seidenberg are fine, but you can't have 2 straight up defensive pairings if you want to be successful. Hunwicj, Stuart, Ference and Boychuk cannot all play together.
That'd be like Komisarek, Schenn, Exelby and Finger playing together on respective pairings.
Boychuk will play with Chara. That combination was awesome down the stretch last year.
Seidenberg will play with Hunwick. They both are PMDs. Hunwick can skate VERY well and Seidenberg is VERY underrated.
Ference and Stuart is a solid pairing. Ference can move the puck and Stuart is a big stay at home guy.
They can all move the puck better than Wideman. Wideman is a terrible skater but can pass. His shot usually misses the net as well. Losing Wideman doesn't hurt our D much at all.
As a Bruins fan this is a good week, only thing that would make it better is if Kaberle blew out a knee b4 the draft. Just a bit more punishment for the center of the Earth's fans
As a Bruins fan this is a good week, only thing that would make it better is if people like you didn't make idiotic posts that make fellow bruins fans look like classless jerks.
On to the topic of Kaberle to Boston, Kaberle is a good puck moving d-men which the Bruins do need, that being said, I would not want him for Savard. Don't get me wrong, the skill is there and the Bruins do need a player like him, however, I DO NOT want to see Savard setting up Kessel. Although Kessel is no longer in Boston, there is no argument that he is a prolific scorer and I believe that reuniting him with a playmaker like Savard will only come back to haunt the Bruins.
