But the reality is that Kaberle is now playing third-pair minutes. That’s shocking. (Leaf fans recall that he routinely played 30 minutes a night in the Quinn playoff years, alongside McCabe- and much more in those classic overtime games.) Importantly, he is not really helping the Bruins as much as some might have expected, or in the way that the organization wanted. And as I mentioned above, he still makes those mistakes you just don’t expect from a 12-year veteran.
Really interesting piece on the Kaberle deal from Vintage Leaf Memories this morning. I highly suggest stopping by and checking out the full article.
