Kevin McGran of The Toronto Star has an update on the Kulemin and Kaberle situations. First up, Kulemin:
Maple Leafs free agent Nikolai Kulemin wants to remain in Toronto, says his agent, with the two sides being about $1 million apart on a new contract...it’s believed Kulemin is looking for $3.5 million a year while the Leafs are offering in the neighbourhood of $2.5 million.
As for Kablerle, it's a bit of a mixed message from MLSE:
...the Leafs front office is musing about signing defenceman Tomas Kaberle to a long-term extension just as at least four teams are showing interest in the perennial all-star. Columbus and Florida...are believed to hold a strong interest in the 32-year puck moving defenceman. Burke says he wants a quality player in return, rather than a high draft pick. But Nonis said the team would only deal Kaberle if the offer made "long-term" sense.
