After a long courting, the Boston Bruins have obtained veteran defenseman Tomas Kaberle from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Providence forward Joe Colborne, a 2011 first round pick, and a conditional draft pick.
Moments later in a salary cap move, the Bruins sent forward Blake Wheeler and defenseman Mark Stuart to the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for center Rich Peverley and defenseman Boris Valabik.
The Bruins now have more than $5 million in cap space. Kaberle will be a free agent in August. The conditional pick in the deal will be a second round pick in 2012 if Kaberle resigns with Boston or if the Bruins win the Stanley Cup.
We can dream.
