50/50 Chance Kaberle Will Be Traded

from Paul Hunter of the Toronto Star,

Kaberle’s agent, Rick Curran, feels the odds are just “50-50” that the smooth-skating rearguard will be dealt before his no-trade clause kicks back in at midnight Sunday.

Burke, in an email, said he has received “several legit offers” for Kaberle that he and Toronto’s management team will assess but none is yet enough to close the deal. Of course, when you’re trying to extract the highest possible value for an asset, it’s to Burke’s advantage to take an auction-style approach to proceedings. And he does have until midnight.

“Too early to say if we’ll make a deal or not,” wrote Burke.

Curran said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Kaberle remains Toronto property. He sees that scenario being just as likely as his client getting moved to Dallas, San Jose, Tampa Bay or any of the other clubs that have been mentioned as potential trading partners with the Leafs.
