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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
