Frantisek Kaberle Sr. on his son: Tomas Kaberle won't re-sign if Wilson is coach
this article from a Czech hockey magazine says Kaberle's Father indicated that Kaberle would welcome a trade from the Leafs and won't re-sign with the Leafs at the end of the season.
If true what do the Leafs do now? Does this force their hand into trading him? Does this make his value less as other GM's know he wants to be moved? Do people think this is legit? If so, it doesn't look real good for Burke.
Not really, it means that if they trade him, he has a better chance of re-signing with the team he is traded to, rather than bolting back to Toronto.
but the teams who are interested no longer have to overpay, since toronto either loses him at the end of the year, or loses him via trade, they now have zero leverage in negotiations, if this report is true
