Getting Messy In Toronto

from Dave Fuller of the Toronto Sun,

The Toronto Maple Leafs have a Tomas Kaberle problem. The longer it festers, the more likely it is to infect other regions of the dressing room.

This is hardly a revelation to team president Brian Burke. He’d have moved Kaberle months ago if, in his mind, he was getting equal value in return.

But this isn’t just about trading a player anymore. It’s about cleaning up a mess.

Burke likely won’t have to ask the veteran defenceman to waive his “no-trade” clause, which the GM is loathe to do. Kaberle and his people — from his father, Frantisek, to his agent, Rick Curran — understand the situation. And, the situation, I suspect, is becoming intolerable.
