    Kaberle signs with the Hurricanes for 12+ million over 3 years and we trade with Carolina for Corvo - a 4th round pick - Corvo makes 2.25 million. Not a bad move - quick decision - Kaberle is not worth 4.25 million on this team but perhaps he is in their system. Let's face it .. we need muscle not beauty on our blue line - Kaberle is soft in our system.

    In other news Lucic had a nose job ... :confused2:

    Does this fit into one of those mid level roster moves you were happy for the Bruins to make IcyPatriot?

    I'm still getting accustomed to familiarizing myself with NHL players from other teams.

    Saved a few million letting Ryder go and saved a few million letting Kaberle walk. If Charelli pulls a move between now and let's say the trade deadline he has left himself a lot of wiggle room. Championships change players in all sports and he won't know how with this team until next year. So I like what i see so far - no need to overspend right now and let's see who still has the hunger for more.

    An upgrade on Boychuck would be a good move IMO.

    Bottom line he helped this team win a Cup. I can't say he was instrumental and dominating in doing so. But he contributed non the less. Makes me wonder if a rental was worth giving up Joe Colborne and a 1st round draft pick? Guess I'll call it a push since the Stanley Cup resides in Boston. Free passes all around.

    So Recchi - 2 million, Ryder - 4 million & Kaberle - 4.25 million and the Bruins have just chopped around 10 million off payroll with those 3 already. Seems OK then.

    I agree with this ... it's hard to say as he could have made plays that prevented other plays from happening ... so no looking back - the nature of the unknown remains. But to resign him for that price inflates what the others are worth so he goes.

    IMO we never really needed him for the power play. We just needed a power play where there was more movement. I think a new season of Seguin will give us that. I really like Tampa's power play where the pivot of the power play is constantly moving - I think Seguin can give us that which is what St. Loius does for Tampa on theirs.

    Kaberle sucked here. If the bruins did NOT win the Cup our 2nd for him would have looked AWFUL.


    our Stanley Cup win nullifies any poor deals:p
