More on Kaberle

Jason Pominville or Derek Roy for Tomas Kaberle ? That’s the latest rumour floating around here in Buffalo.

Here’s a link to the story reposted on thefourthperiod. Not a huge surprise as Buffalo has been linked to Kaberle ever since Burke made T-Kab the hottest name on the trading block.

Jason Pominville , 26, earns $5.3 million (cap hit) for the next 4 seasons, and would fit the mold of a young top 6 forward. Derek Roy , earns $14 mil over the next 3 seasons but his cap hit would be just $4 million per season due to a front loaded contract, and he would also fit the bill, although he is a bit of a smaller player.

From a Sabres perspective this deal would fit their style, as they would be unloading some salary, especially in Pominville’s case, which is a typical thing for Buffalo to do every year. Also its well do*****ented that Tomas Kaberle prefers the travel schedule of an Eastern Conference team and likes the area in Toronto. A trade to Buffalo would allow him to keep his Toronto home and Buffalo is therefore one of the most likely teams to get an extension done with Kaberle.

The biggest questions here are can Burke get a better player than Jason Pominville , or Derek Roy ? Does he feel that they are worth dealing Kaberle for? And of course, is this rumour true?’
