    dez - Fair enough.  There's no guarantee the Habs will be getting the Carolina Kaberle.  With that sad sack club he played like a sad sack.  The move might rejuvenate him.  In case it doesn't he's more than experienced in facing the heat from fans in a hockey-nuts city after playing here in T. O.

    I agree. He will thrive on their power play, which they live and die with, but there is also more to his game than just the power play. Like I've stated before in other threads, I would have liked to see what he would have doen in Boston this year with a full training camp under his belt. Obviously, Carolina was not a fit, and he struggled. but, is that team playing horrible all his fault?
    He was not nearly as bad here as people are saying. Did he help the power play? No, has it really improved that much with Corvo?
    They won a Cup with him and he played a big part in it. He has his faults, but as far as going back to his end, the puck retrieval and getting the pass up, there isnt many better in the league than him. Very underrated part of the game, gets the whole play going. How many goals did the Bruins score on the rush last year during the Cup run? That is his biggest strength.
    I remember gong to a playoff game last year, Kaberle was going to get the puck from behind his net, i turned to my buddy and said "watch how smooth he does this and how the play develops from here." ...5 minutes later, Seidenberg had the same scenario, i said, "now watch this"....big difference

    Kel, I just mentioned in another thread how good Wideman is with the 1st pass too. It's an incredibly important part of the game but one that is overlooked by most fans. Oh well. I hope Corvo can get better at it soon.

    Dez as I was saying in my earlier posts is everyone knows he will be trying to dish the puck to Subban or on the half wall to a forward.  That was the problem with Boston.  Easy to defend against , that is teams that do their homework.
    Carolina also relied on their PP ,  Skinner and Staal thrive on it but it didn't work there. 
    The issue here is will the assists he gets on PP (if many) outweigh his weak defense in his own end ? 
    At the very most he'll even out but that does not make the Habs a better team.

    As much as I love Chara, he hasn't got the foot speed to fill lanes the way that Subban and some of the smaller Montreal forwards do. In Boston, setting up Zee is essentially feeding a stationary target. The one thing Kaberle does very well will be better utilized in Montreal (or so I think). We'll get our 1st look in just over 2 hours (CBC).

    and speaking of Wideman he's pretty darn good on the PP.  In 08-09 the Bruins PP did pretty well.
    Corvo last game just before  Panthers scored made a nice play on a Seidenberg pinch and could have saved a goal.  The goal that finally went in all started with a turnover and the forwards not making back on time. 
    Sure we always blame the D on goals and we always look at what D was on to blame a goal on  but turnovers and counter play a big part when getting scored upon .
    In the end on that goal , defensive coverage (D and Forwards) was array and both Krejci and Corvo looked like the sacrificial lambs.  Keystone cops (for you jaywall).

    The Panther goal was definitely more the forwards fault than the D. 1 of the forwards needs to take the trailer and they failed.

    Paying a guy over $4 mil a year for the next 3 years is a lot of money for a guy that can retrieve the puck and get the pass up ( when he isn't losing it behind the net ), but if the Habs are happy with him, good for them.

    Bad comparison not the same is expected of Siedenberg and Corvo but I know who gets more minutes in the playoffs and who I trust when two fourcheckers are coing down on the two, Siedenberg hands down.

    Corvo will drop his gloves to protect teammates and hits the opposing players, Kaberle avoids both like the plague. Just like Kaberle with the Bruins, Corvo only has one sniper who can onetime it and has too listen to a terrible PP coach.

    You are way off especially when it comes to the cost!

    I think it's a pretty poor reflection of Kaberle's play this year that Carolina was willing to trade him within the division, while sitting at the 15 seed!  He really must have ticked someone off down there.  Would have made more sense to move him out west, but this is just Rutherford's admission that the rebuild has begun.

    I also think he will play better in Montreal; if he doesn't it will be the end of the line for him.

    He's had 1 NHL fight and it wasn't in aid of a teammate. He's made 10 hits this year and I don't remember any of them.

    He's playing like it. He trails only PK Suban in ice time on both teams. The Habs last PP looked awesome. It's now 1-0 Habs after a PP goal. Yes, he set it up.

    Just a reminder to all. Remember how great Kaberle looked after his first game with the B's. The comments on this board were close to being euphoric...... Whoops hold on Kaberle on the ice 2-1 ( -1 for the game ).......OK back to what I was trying to say . Let's hold off on mailing in the James Norris to him.

    That's the 1 word you can absolutely use to describe Kaberle. He's had at least 30 points for 11 straight seasons while topping out at 67 (averaged 46). He's the 2nd highest scoring D since the lockout.
