Tomas Kaberle Traded to Boston for Joe Colborne and Draft Picks


The Tomas Kaberle era in Toronto is over.  We're calling it at 878 regular-season games.  He was the only Leaf remaining who actually suited up for the team in the 90s.

My son still has his Tomas Kaberle bobblehead and I'll always have my Tomas Kaberle autograph.

Kaberle is now a member of the Boston Bruins.  The Leafs will receive prospect centre Joe Colborne, the Bruins’ first-round pick and a conditional second-round pick in 2012 if Kaberle - an unrestricted free agent this summer – signs a new contract in Boston or if they make the Stanley Cup final.

I just looked it up... "Kaberle" appears in 207 entries on this blog, excluding this one.  He was a very likable, solid performer for over a decade and I already miss the SOB.  But as I learned from the excellent HBO series Six Feet Under, everything ends.
