What Offer Is Right For Kaberle?

from Michael Traikos ot the National Post at the Montreal Gazette,

“We’re not asking for anything,” Burke said. “We’re fielding offers. We’re either going to get an offer that makes sense for Tomas Kaberle or we’re going to keep him.”

The difficulty is figuring out what offers might make sense.

It is no secret that the Leafs, who appear to be starting the season with sophomore Tyler Bozak and rookie Nazem Kadri as their top two centres, are incredibly thin up front. The team needs players who can put the puck in the net. So any deal would have to include a top-six forward.

But with 180 top-six forward positions in the league, the quality varies.

“Is it Sidney Crosby or is it someone who got 21 goals last year?” asked one league GM, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It would depend on what your qualifications on a top-six forward are. I would assume that Burkie is talking about a guy that could bring some offence.”
