Hurricanes desperate to move Kaberle

Desperate to move Kaberle. Would they move McBain? I wouldn’t. Need to get a comparable young forward back. Already have those.!/LukeDe*****/status/135397058852044800

    Kaberle back to toronto ?

    How much would you give to get him?

    Colborne + a 1st ?or  Lupul + Gardiner? for Kaberle.

  2. Steven_Leafs says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Yeah right, we'll get right on that.

    Weren't you one of the many who claimed kabby was worthless?

  4. LeafsNation4Ever says:

    7th round pick. *kidding*

    No, Kaberle is just another Liles, we don't need him back, although I would have loved it if he resigned with us during the summer. He's ready to move on.

  5. Boston_Bruins says:

    Kaberle's production this year: 17 games, – 5, 4 assists (3 PP assists, 3 secondary assists)

  6. TheLeafNation91 says:

    Oh god, if he came back to Toronto I would off myself.

    I think BB might say the same for his Bruins.

    Speaking of crappy Hurricanes this year. Erik Staal has 4 goals, 3 assists and a whopping -13 this year. Ouch, if he needs a change of scenery. I will be happy to take him.

  7. TheLeafNation91 says:

    I think you just insulted Liles. Liles is better defensively and not afraid to shoot.

    Playmaking wise, Kaberle's better, however, I like and prefer the whole package and Liles is very solid in every dimension in his game.

    I've heard Gags name involved with mcbain. the oilers do have lots of entertaining pieces to offer. but i do not see Kaberle in the picture.

  9. alpalstewart says:

    way to talk about a great leaf defender. 

  10. alpalstewart says:

    might aswell start bashing Mcabe now. cus he was a great leaf defender that never had the same success elsewhere. yeeeeesh.

    kaberle is still a great player, but he's having a tough time this year.
    seem's visnovsky like to me, and his game will come around. still expect 45 points outs him
  11. palindrom says:

    it depends how you define worthless.

    But i am in the one who thought he didn't worth Cater + a 1st (JVR)

  12. Boston_Bruins says:

    Pretty much.

  13. reinjosh says:

    He just was better as a Leaf. Sort of seems to be a trend with some players. Stajan, Hagman, White. But yeah I'm with you now. I still say he was better as a Leaf than you let on but he just fell off the earth afterwards.

    And yeah I'd go after Staal. Big price but screw it, I'd love him. Best thing is he works with scorers to so he would probably fit well with Kessel. Really well. 
  14. reinjosh says:

    That's interesting. Probably fair value swap. Not sure carolina needs a center though but maybe they can swap Ganger to the wing. McBain would be interesting for Edmonton but I'm not sure it would be what they are looking for either. Not a perfect fit anyways. 

  15. mapleleafsfan says:

    White's been great in Detroit so far. But then again, I think I'd be great playing with lidstrom. 

    I love white on the leafs and I bet you wings fans are saying the same thing now. You see him block a shot with his face to keep the lead the other night? What a beauty. Fantastic mustache as well. 
  16. dumbassdoorman says:

    i think the Oilers would have to add a bit,not much bit a bit, McBain has a high upside and good season for a rookie dman.

  17. Steven_Leafs says:

    The first round pick in question did not become JVR. It was when Philadelphia was in the 2007-2008 playoff race. So the pick would have been in 2008 which PHI used to select Luca Sbisa. (which if the trade happens there is no guarantee that the pick would end up being 19th overall and no guarantee Luca Sbisa would have been selected there)

  18. Steven_Leafs says:

    haha yeah every team would love to go after Eric Staal. I wonder what he would cost the Leafs if Carolina was looking to move him. We probably would have the best chance to get him.

  19. mojo19 says:

    Ya, even in Boston he didn't play his game. He was always a great Leaf (5th on the all-time assists list). And ya alpastewart, you raise a great point, its funny how Leafs fans (some*) can turn their backs on a player who played a decade and a half in their organization. Some Leafs fans are heartless.

    I'll always remember the shot Kaberle took in OT against the Penguins, 2nd round of the playoffs in '99 that squeeked through and sat on the line before Berezin tapped it in. Or the OT winner against Florida in '06 during the Leafs magical run that fell a point short of the playoffs (Sundin's 6 point night). Or in 2002 when Kaberle fired a seeing eye shot that went through 9 pairs of legs before squeeking out to Sundin who banged it home with 18 seconds left to stave off elimination in the conference finals.

    So many great years as a Leaf. I would welcome him back if there were no salary cap, but it just doesn't make sense. Maybe as the year goes on if we could move a d-man for a forward, then I wouldn't mind moving a lesser forward for Kaberle, if the 'Canes are intent on dealing him for a "lesser" return.

    And then you have a player like Stempniak who was tearing it up the first quarter of the season for the Blues, plays like shit for a year and a half in Toronto, then tears it up for the last quarter of the season with the Coyotes. Stemps is the anti-Kaberle.
