Bruins Trading For Kaberle?


In two separate interviews on 98.5 The Sports Hub this afternoon with Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti, both Cam Neely and Brian Burke said enough to allow listeners to infer that the Bruins are now in serious talks with the Maple Leafs about defenseman Tomas Kaberle.

Burke, in fact, when asked straight if he was in trade talks with the Bruins right now said “yes” and, while suggesting he wouldn’t offer any details, brought up Kaberle’s name in that very same context without being overly prompted by the questioners. It was almost funny. He admitted that Kaberle didn’t want details about waiving his no-trade clause released but it certainly seems like it has happened and that the Boston Bruins are in the mix. He also admitted that the Leafs number one pick in 2011, owned by the B’s from the Phil Kessel deal, was not part of the discussion.

In an interview a short time later with the same hosts, Cam Neely seemed to suggest some sort of deal was close for his team. It doesn’t take much to connect the dots.

The Bruins are the frontrunners for Tomas Kaberle and a deal may very well be imminent, within the next 48-72 hours.
