Let's talk about Tomas Kaberle. He's still got that baby face, but can you believe this guy is now 30-years old? He's been a Leaf since 1996, and is consistently one of our top performers. Until this season, I don't recall any complaints about Kaberle. He's just been solid.
Now Kaberle is firmly situated in Ron Wilson's doghouse. Wilson has certain players he just doesn't dig. Maybe he expects more from them or maybe he thinks they're dogging it, whatever the reason Wilson isn't shy about sending messages in clear daylight. In fact, Wilson benched Kaberle for the first period last night and Kaberle responded with perhaps his worst game ever.
When asked if he was sending a message to Kaberle, Wilson said, "Yeah, and I guess he sent a message back with a minus [three]."
Expect to see Kaberle traded as soon as Burke can get it done. I just hope we're not tossing the baby with the bathwater here.
