Probably go to some losing team with no future. Help someone get to the cap floor then play his usual uninspired, soft, gutless, heartless, careless style until his contract is up and he can go sit in a comfy chair and read for the rest of his life as his double chin turns into a triple chin and eventually you can't even notice he has a chin.
Kaberle will be able to watch his double chin's reflection in his Stanley Cup shinny diamond ring while Burrows can bite his teammates nails for chocking at the worst possible time...
I'd rather overpay for Marchand than Kaberle. Get Marchand done first, and then worry about Kaberle. The guy is soft as warm butter. He can move the puck, and helped the Bruins get a cup, but I won't be sad to see him sign with another team. Good guy, just not a Bruin type player.
He either re-signs in Boston or goes to the Rangers IMO.
The Stars make sense as do the Blue Jackets. I don't know if they'd be willing to spend though. He's probably looking for the last big contract of his career.
I will be VERY surprised if the Leafs go after Kaberle and get him back. It might be a situation Kaberle and Leafs fans want and it could seem like the perfect ending, but that ship has sailed IMO. Burke made that quite clear when he finally traded him.
A Few things I would like to say now that it appears the Kaberle Era is over in Boston...
1. Leafs finally made a great trade with Chiarelli (from leafs perspective) and took some big steps towards being a playoff team again.
2. Kaberle is getting a undeserved Wideman treatment from a lot of Bruin fans. Nobody will argue that Kaberle didn't have the impact we were hoping for on the power play, at least during the regular season and the series with Philly/Habs. That being said, he wasn't that bad in other parts of his game.
In the playoffs, he was the Bruins leading scorer with a +8. He had 5 PP Assists in the TB/Van series leading the Bruins PP to 16% success rate.
Without Kaberle and this trade, Bruins dont win cup. I honestly believe that.
Would I like to still have Coburne? Of Course, but how can you second guess any roster moves Chiarelli made at the deadline now?
Good luck to Tomas Kaberle and I hope he gets a good multi year contract from a good team
