Kessel chatter around the NHL?

The Tomas Kaberle Trade Watch is (mercifully) over, but that doesn’t mean Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke is done.

One NHL scout said the Leafs have been testing the waters to see if there any takers for winger Phil Kessel.

“I was kind of surprised to hear his name as a possibility, but Kessel’s available,” the scout said.


Tomas Kaberle’s time as a Toronto Maple Leaf has finally come to an end.

After 12 seasons in blue and white, the Maple Leafs have traded the veteran defenceman to the Boston Bruins in exchange for prospect centre Joe Colborne, the Bruins’ first round pick in 2011 and a conditional draft pick.

The trade call still has to go through the league to confirm the deal.

Leafs GM Brian Burke On Trade Talks With Bruins

Tough questions for some GMs

Speaking of the trade deadline, the Bruins are in a terrific position to pry some top-end talent from teams in the seller’s category, thanks in large part to the Phil Kessel deal that gives Boston another of Toronto’s first-round picks this year (the Bruins used the other to pick up Tyler Seguin in last year’s draft). The Leafs look like they’ll be a draft lottery team again this season, which means Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli can dangle a top-five pick.

Carbo Says Habs Can Use Kaberle

Guy Carbonneau says the Canadiens need to make a deal, not at any price, but they need to acquire someone like Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle before the February 28th NHL trade deadline.

Let the shopping begin.

With the NHL trade deadline set for Feb. 28 at 3 p.m., many of the league’s 30 GMs are still trying to figure out whether they’re going to be buyers or sellers.

At last year’s deadline, there were 31 deals involving 55 players.

It would be hard to believe that is going to happen again.
