Hard to score in Kaberle deal

Brian Burke is hoping to get a relatively young scoring winger in a deal for Tomas Kaberle .

And that is going to be a challenge of sorts.

The highest-scoring wingers available are expensive free agents like Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrick Marleau.

Maybe available in a trade is Alexander Semin , who plays wing and centre, but he’s as much a problem as he is a solution.

Jeff Carter may be available again, but with Philadelphia landing Dan Hamhuis , they don’t have any need for Kaberle .

Which leaves what?

An overpriced, underproductive Nathan Horton ?

Maybe Dustin Penner ?

The market is thin for 30-goal scorers or those capable of that number.

Dealing Kaberle has always been a challenge: It’s may be more of one now.
