good thing they all live close to the city where they have been partying (less Foxwoods) that nobody pulls a Heatley and kills some black ace.

Love the Hamilton pick. Can never have enough monster D-men.

Kessel trade was such a monster for this team.

B's sign Joe Corvo (who?).

T. Kab gets 3 years w/ Canes. No one will miss him.

Corvo is good pick-up for a 4th rounder.

If Kaberle would've stayed for $3.5 or less, Bs might've bit. A training camp and learning the system from the hop can do wonders for a guy. He wasn't as bad as he looked at times during the playoffs. That said, thanks for the memories if that's what CAR is gonna give you. Best of luck.

I heard somewhere (probably T&R) that he was woefully out of shape when he came here and when he first got here he put in minimal effort to learn the system. No idea if any of that is true. But my young hockey eyes didn't enjoy what I saw out of him, so I'd defer to you on such matters.

I can't speak to his effort to learn the system (grasping is a different bag). But he was definitely out of shape (an indictment of Toronto's team conditioning) and couldn't be relied upon for monster minutes (if his early play warranted them but it didn't).

I wouldn't be surprised if he gave the Bs a last chance to match and they politely declined.

If the Bs could've had him for $3.5 or less, I think he would've been a decent pick up. He wasn't nearly as bad the player he looked like at times. But the rough start killed his confidence and it took awhile to get back. Still, he was playing a pretty reliable 3rd pairing role for the last half of the playoffs for the Cup champs and let's not forget he was tied for the team lead in scoring by D (0-11--11) with the German. A full training camp and indoctrination into Claude's system (plus a reset on his confidence button) would have surely produced a better player than the one we saw in April.

But not for 4-and-a-quarter. Thanks Tomas, happy trails.

I don't think they're looking at Corvo as a replacement. More of a complimentary piece. Hunwick will be looked at to bounce back from his injury and step up (he was good to go halfway through playoffs buy Claude wasn't messing with the D).

Kampfer, not Hunwick. the latter is a stiff, the former hopes he's not.

Wow. Freudian slip for what I fear---him peaking as a rookie (like happened to Hunwick so far).

But I don't think that happens.
