One team from each conference still in the hunt for Kaberle. Sources say there’s still a chance he gets traded tonight, but not likely.
The Jackets are no longer in serious contention for Kaberle, an NHL source told the Dispatch. Jackets general manager Scott Howson and Toronto general Brian Burke had several good discussions, the source said, but there’s “no fit there.”

With Bieksa and Mitchell in play, its slowed the urgency for Kaberle. As of now teams like SJ seems more interested in grit than finesse.

Barring a miracle (ie. In the next hour) Tomas Kaberle will remain a Maple Leaf. Now back to Madmen.

STATEMENT FROM BRIAN BURKE
The hockey club confirms this evening that Tomas Kaberle remains a Leaf. While a number of Clubs made offers to trade for Tomas, none of them reflected Tomas’s value to our team. I understand a period like this is stressful to the player, and we are pleased that there is a resolution, and we can all continue to prepare for the coming season.
