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.
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.
