Found March 30, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
While preparing for Saturday night's tilt with the New York Rangers, the Canadiens did something many have expected all year, and waived Tomas Kaberle. Kaberle has played little this year, dressing for only 10 games. While he has played admirably, with 3 points and a +4 rating, averaging only 13 minutes a game, Kaberle has been a spare part, as coach Michel Therrien has favoured auditioning AHLers over the veteran NHLer. To Kaberle's credit, he hasn't complained one bit, despite the fact that by all accounts he really wants to play. The Habs likely made this move to stay flexible towards the deadline, as he represents $4.25 million towards the salary cap. So, who could the Habs be looking at?

Goal breakdown: Rangers still can’t solve Canadiens

This loss is a bit of a difficult one to take. The Rangers played very well int his game. They generated offense, they had a solid powerplay, but they just couldn’t solve Carey Price. Price kept it at 1-0 (on that flukey goal) for a long time before one breakdown made it 2-0. Following that, the Rangers didn’t give up (still generated good chances), but you could tell something...
