Kaberle will remain with Leafs
Tomas Kaberle, the subject of numerous trade rumors this summer, will remain a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Tomas Kaberle, the subject of numerous trade rumors this summer, will remain a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

A clause in the defenseman's contract specified that Kaberle's no-trade clause would be invalid from the 2010 Entry Draft until Aug. 15 if the Leafs did not make the playoffs. But while the Leafs said they received offers, no deal was made before the no-trade clause kicked in again.

"The hockey club confirms this evening that Tomas Kaberle remains a Leaf," Maple Leafs General Manager Brian Burke told the club's website. "While a number of clubs made offers to trade for Tomas, none of them reflected Tomas' value to our team. I understand a period like this is stressful to the player, and we are pleased that there is a resolution, and we can all continue to prepare for the coming season."

Kaberle, an eighth-round pick by the Leafs in 1996, has played every one of his 820 NHL games with Toronto, amassing 80 goals and 482 points. Last season he had 7 goals and 49 points while playing all 82 games for the sixth time in 11 seasons.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
