Description: Montreal defenseman Tomas Kaberle is questionable for Tuesday's game against Winnipeg due to a facial injury.
Insight: Kaberle is not off to a good start and in the past has been capable of a 50-plus point season, but at this time in his career his lineup spot is not guaranteed. Look elsewhere for defensive help.

Description: Tomas Kaberle is questionable for Wednesday's game against Buffalo.
Insight: Kaberle is not having a very good season, but is a blueliner capable of a 50-plus point season. So far this year, Kaberle has just 31 points in 70 games and a plus/minus rating of -19.

Description: The Carolina Hurricanes have traded Tomas Kaberle to the Montreal Canadiens for Jaroslav Spacek. TSN
Insight: It is clear that Andrei Markov is not returning anytime soon, so acquiring Kaberle makes some sense, despite his multi-year contract. The Canadiens are receiving very little scoring from the blueline and are currently at the bottom of the league in power-play percentage.

Description: The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Tomas Kaberle to a three-year, $12.75 million contract. TSN
Insight: Kaberle was one of the top point-producing defensemen in the NHL while with the Leafs, yet he failed to emerge as an offensive threat with Boston after being traded there at the deadline (nine points in 24 regular-season games, 11 points in 25 playoff games). He may thrive in the Hurricanes' up-tempo system and could rack up some points once again while playing in the high-scoring Southeast Division.

Description: According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Boston Bruins sent an email to teams on Tuesday afternoon offering the negotiating rights to Tomas Kaberle. TSN
Insight: Dreger said that the Canucks did the same thing with Christian Ehrhoff and were able to find a taker in the New York Islanders. It remains to be seen whether Kaberle's rights are traded before July 1, but don't expect him to be back with the Bruins next season.
5/14/2011 11:30:00 PM
Description: Tomas Kaberle was held without a point with a +1 in the Bruins' 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 1 on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Kaberle looked absolutely brutal in giving the puck away to Teddy Purcell, who then scored the Lightning's third goal of the first period. Since arriving in Boston 36 games ago, Kaberle has just one goal and 12 points, including just three assists in 12 playoff games. Simply put, he's been a bust for the Bruins.

Description: The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Tomas Kaberle to the Boston Bruins for prospect center Joe Colborne, a first-round pick in 2011, and a conditional draft pick. TSN
Insight: With the Bruins, Kaberle should take on the same role as he had in Toronto: power-play QB. His acquisition should also help the fantasy value of Zdeno Chara, who will no doubt prosper from Kaberle's passing ability on the power play. Kaberle's own value should increase with the move, as he is now playing for a better team and should see his plus/minus improve.

Description: The Toronto Maple Leafs have officially traded Tomas Kaberle to the Boston Bruins for prospect center Joe Colborne, a first-round pick in 2011, and a conditional draft pick. TSN
2/18/2011 12:01:00 AM
Description: Toronto GM Brian Burke said Thursday that reports of an imminent trade sending Kaberle to Boston are untrue.
Insight: Kaberle has a no-trade clause in his contract, and Burke said the team has not received a list of acceptable destinations from Kaberle. He did say, however, that he thinks the veteran might be open to being dealt. (
2/17/2011 1:59:00 PM
Description: According to CSNNE and TSN, the Boston Bruins are closing in on a trade for defenseman Tomas Kaberle. CSNNE
Insight: The package will likely see Blake Wheeler and a draft pick being sent to the Leafs for Kaberle, who mentioned a few days ago that he wouldn't mind playing for the Bruins. Kaberle has been reluctant to leave the Leafs, although the team has made it known that they would like to trade him. A Kaberle deal likely won't be announced on Thursday, but something could happen over the next 2-3 days. But we've also been down this road before with news from the rumor mill that is Toronto.
2/15/2011 8:29:00 PM
Description: Tomas Kaberle has not waived his no-trade clause, despite recent reports to the contrary. TSN
Insight: Kaberle has reportedly told Leafs GM Brian Burke that Boston would be a favorable place for him to go. The Leafs have tried and failed to trade Kaberle over the past few seasons, yet he will no doubt be one of the most talked-about players leading up to the trade deadline.

Description: Tomas Kaberle assisted on four power-play goals in the Leafs' 9-3 win over Atlanta on Friday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Kaberle has one of the most interesting stat lines in the NHL, even for a defenseman: 27 assists to go with just one goal. He may not be the type of player that Brian Burke and Ron Wilson want, but you can't deny his ability to put up points and run a power play.
12/27/2010 6:00:00 PM

12/12/2010 4:03:00 AM
Description: Tomas Kaberle scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in the Leafs' 3-1 win over Montreal on Saturday. TSN
Insight: It's not as if Kaberle hasn't been contributing anything, as he has 16 assists in 29 games this season. The return of Dion Phaneuf to the lineup may help Kaberle earn some more power-play points, as ten of Kaberle's assists have been on the man advantage.
12/7/2010 8:02:00 AM
Description: Kaberle picked up two assists on Monday in a win over the Capitals.
Insight: Kaberle has four assists over his last four games to give him 14 assists total on the year. (
