    There is no D in Kaberle

    Am I the only one who feels his "so far, not too effective" offensive upside is not worth defensive short comings? He is a defensive liability every time he touches the ice. I'll take Stuart over him any day and have an extra 2.5 mil to put somewhere else.

    Plenty of things went wrong tonight.  Kaberle wasn't near the top of the problems.  Why didn't you post this after any of the other games?

    Re: There is no D in Kaberle

    I'm not with you on that one. I've been watching him closely and his decision-making is excellent. His passes make it to the target.  He's in position and stays with his man.

    When the rest of the team is playing mediocre hockey, you can't expect too much from him. He's also just arrived on the scene. The chemistry isn't just going to appear suddenly, after his long history with the Leafs.

    No, I don't see any issues with Kaberle and I think he'll be great for the Bs. He's never been one to take shots on goal but that's something I've seen lots of Bruins change over the years. So I don't see any negatives with Kaberle at all.

    IMHO

    He's not physical (we knew that) but at least he is usually positionally sound.  Tonight he had a bad game, he's entitled.  One game shouldn't define his career.

    I agree, the b's puck movement has been much better since Kab arrived, it hasn't necessarily produced in a lot of offence, but I'm still hopeful that it will.

    I'm not on this thing 24/7 man.

    Why is my personal schedule a point of your concern?

    I'm sort of confused by the heat he has been taking. And I must be watching different games because it seems to me he's great on the PP. Have heard many comments to the contrary.

    I think lots of fans were thinking he was going to come in and miraculously turn the PP around.

    TK may have an offensive upside, however the defensive downside is more relevant. If PC wants to sign this guy, which overall he should, it cannot be anything impressive. I have not seen TK as the almighty yet. Playoffs are coming and this will be another test for him and his contract.

    Hopefully you are right and the team will start to mesh with his style better, maybe one of the "stat nuts" (NAS) can pull up something on W's & L's or PPG W/ and W/o, but I have noticed lots of time where he is in left field on some goal or lacking in net front presence. We definately took a step back with him in the physical dept. Just not too sure he is worth it?

    He's done what the Bruins got him to do; exit the puck quickly and add some effectiveness to the PP although that end of it still needs work.

    There is a ton of over-reaction on this board. A guy has has bad game and the posts begin: won't get past the second round, can't play defense, no killer instinct, should have traded TT when they had the chance... lol.

    Maybe I have too much patience, but I see improvement, but not necessarily the results I had expected when they got Kabs, I was hoping for more from the PP. I still think there is a coaching/strategy issue, since everyone on this team has been on the PP at some point.

    He's come as advertised, moves the puck well, not strong in his own end, not physical, but a great passer.

    Agreed, and there is def a coaching issue. On the critical end, I don't mind being hard on the team when they deserve it (it's called discussion), but I'll just be ignoring the over-reactions and trolling.

    Something tells me he's got it in hin to be physical though. I'm hoping Z + the team's physical play in general (when it's there) will rub off on him.

    Well I hope so ...because since the trade we have'nt seen much of Kaberle ...he looks like a player ready to retire that doesnt want to get hurt and do the dirty work...he has'nt impressed me at all ....if he doesnt stand up in the playoffs I dont think the B's should sign him...PC should try to sign him at no more than $2MM a year and try to trade him during the summer...So far Kaberle's acquisition is a terrible mistake ...Mark Stuart is 10 times better

    Are you kidding me Buins-Unite ???? I am 57 years old and I think I have a harder shot than Kaberle.....he has the playoffs to justify his salary I am willing to give him a second chance and see what he can do in the real games ahead

    This was certainly a good trade for the Leafs and I think will be a good gamble for the Bruins in the end.

    Sorry, but Kaberle gets $4-5 million from some team, if not the Bruins.

    I do think losing Mark Stuart was a bad move for the Bruins, I don't like the defence back there outside of the Chara.  That may come back to haunt them.  Stuart would be a warrior in the playoffs.  I think that move was a salary dump unfortunatley.  And we all know Wheeler is going to bag 40 goals next year....
