Prelude to another deal? – Kaberle for Savard?

By landing Nathan Horton , the Boston Bruins had to punch a hole in their blueline by including defenceman Dennis Wideman in the deal with the Florida Panthers. This move has sparked speculation that the Bruins may not be done – and some believe Boston may now zero in on Toronto’s Tomas Kaberle .

Now Leafs GM Brian Burke and Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli thought they had a trade involving Kaberle and Phil Kessel at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, but the deal was scuttled over confusion as to whether or not draft picks would be included.

Burke has publicly stated he wants a scoring winger as compensation for Kaberle , but according to league sources, star centre Marc Savard is available.

Boston and Toronto have yet to re-open talks involving Kaberle , but it’s likely the Bruins will express interest and if Savard is in play, why wouldn’t the Maple Leafs consider reuniting him with Phil Kessel ?
