Kaberle to Boston is probably gonna happen.


     So it is finally going to happen. After about a year of speculation, it seems as if the Tomas Kaberle to Boston rumors are finally going to come to fruition. According to puck daddy, the terms of the deal are being finalzed now, and it seems like he two teams are waiting for Boston to clear enough cap space to afford Kaberle for the rest of the year.

     The most likely scenario for this trade to happen as it currently stands would send Blake Wheeler and a draft pick to Toronto, and have Tomas Kaberle and possibly a pick coming back to Boston. Then, in order to clear cap space, Mark Stuart is possibly heading to the defending Stanley Cup champs, probably just returning picks and/or prospects. Lines would probably then look like this:

 

Lucic - Krejci - Horton

Marchand - Bergeron - Recchi

Ryder - Kelly - Seguin

Paille - Campbell - Thornton

 

Chara - Kaberle

Seidenberg - Kampfer

Mcquaid - Ference

 

Thomas

Rask

 

13th forward - Caron

7th Defensemen - Boychuk

 

     I would much rather see Adam Mcquaid in this line up as opposed to Johnny Boychuk. Nothing against Boychuk per say, I just feel as if he has been outplayed by Mcquaid. Also, this leaves the Bruins with a little more wiggle room under the cap, another 1.5 million or so, which means that Boychuk could potentially be moved by the deadline as well.

     That is a line up that I feel much more confident in as oppossed to the way the team is set up now. This line up is rolling 4 lines that can score, and 3 out of the 4 that can bring a significant amount of grit. Then look at the back end. 3 balanced pairs, all 3 of which have a very solid guy to take care of the defensive zone, and 2 out of the 3 have a legitimate puck moving defensemen. Oh yeah, you also have 2 of the 10 best goalies in the game.

     I hear a lot of people saying that this team doesn't have the ability to make a legitimate run at a Cup this year. My question is, what about their game makes them not a cup contender?
