Report: Tomas Kaberle ‘in line’ to attend Devils’ camp

Defenseman Tomas Kaberle could be attending New Jersey Devils camp on a tryout according to Tom Gulitti of The Record. Kaberle, 36, has not played in the NHL since appearing in 10 games with the Montreal Canadiens during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. “He has talked to us about a tryout,” Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told Gulitti. “That has not been officially...

HC Kladno Officially Sign Kaberle, Hlavac by   Steven Ellis

Czech Republic team HC Kladno have officially signed two former NHLers in defenseman Tomas Kaberle and forward Jan Hlavac. The Montreal Canadiens bought out Kaberle earlier this season after spending much of the campaign as a healthy scratch.

Sunday news update: Kaberle, Komisarek to be bought out; trade rumors; Bergeron/Toews’ statuses

Goodbye, Kaberle

Alright folks, here it is: shocker of all shockers, the Montreal Canadiens are using their second compliance buyout on Tomas Kaberle (as per Sportsnet, and various other sources). This may not really be news - anyone following the Habs knew Kaberle was as good as gone - but I want to take a moment to recognize Kaberle for his professionalism. He was never given a shot by the new...

‘Different’ Bruins Team Looking for Similar Results on Eve of Stanley Cup Final (Video)

This year’s Bruins roster does not look a whole lot different from the one that brought the Stanley Cup home to Boston two years ago. Only three players that saw time during the 2011 playoffs (Tim Thomas, Tomas Kaberle and Mark Recchi) are no longer with the team, but alternate captain Patrice Bergeron told NESN’s Jack Edwards during Tuesday’s media day that the remaining...

Habs set for Rangers, waive Kaberle

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...

Report: Tomas Kaberle Placed on Waivers by Montreal Canadiens

A familiar face is available to the Bruins (or any NHL team) as the trade deadline nears. The Montreal Canadiens placed 13-year veteran Tomas Kaberle on waivers Saturday according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. Kaberle had taken on a minimal role for Montreal this season, appearing in just 10 games. It has been a tough season for the former Bruin as he has only posted three total points...

Jaroslav Spacek 2011-12 Scoring Chances

If there is one positive thing to take away from the Tomas Kaberle fiasco last, it is that Jim Rutherford was able to dump off his contract on then Montreal Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier without giving up much of anything. All the Hurricanes had to do was take on the expiring contract of 37 year old defenseman Jaroslav Spacek in return and this deal ended up being more than just a...

Tomas Kaberle 2011-12 Scoring Chances

Let's not beat around the bush here, the Tomas Kaberle signing was a gigantic misfire by Jim Rutherford. He even admitted it himself. The Hurricanes may have almost made the playoffs in 2010-11 but they were still a team that was rebuilding and had a stockpile of defensemen in their farm system, so bringing in Kaberle on a three year deal was a puzzling acquisition to say the...

Habs news on a quiet Monday

Not much to report of late. Tomas Kaberle is unlikely to play tomorrow, still with his wife following the birth of their daughter. Andrei Markov will play. Maybe these two can’t play together - perhaps it’s fate? Mathieu Darche continues to work his way back from what appears to have been a very bad concussion, and the Canadiens continue to work their way downward, sitting in...

Trade Deadline Success Next in Line of Things Bruins Must Accomplish in Attempt to Defend Stanley Cup

The Bruins were busy around the trade deadline last season when they acquired Tomas Kaberle, Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley.

This season, with the pressure on Peter Chiarelli and Boston to improve as the deadline is just hours away, the Bruins...

Peter Chiarelli Needs to Show Creativity at NHL Trade Deadline, As Market Not Lining Up With Bruins' Needs
