Burke Unable To Move Kaberle On Short Notice

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

For a tantalizing 24 hours, Brian Burke had the valued card that he had so badly wanted to play in the months counting down to Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline.

Tomas Kaberle and agent Rick Curran put themselves in the big game, letting it be known they’d relent and waive his no-trade clause, pending Burke’s exploratory talks with three select clubs.

But Burke either could not make something happen with such a limited field or had too little time, and the day ended with Kaberle aboard the flight to Boston with the rest of the Leafs for Thursday’s game.

Kaberle has been singin’ in the rain for the five years the Leafs have missed the playoffs, convincing himself that sunny skies were coming back.
