Kaberle bought out by 'Canes

News: The Carolina Hurricanes are parting ways with the player who scored the goal that won them the Stanley Cup in 2006. The Hurricanes said Tuesday they have bought out the remaining year on the contract of defenseman Frantisek Kaberle, who would have made $2.2 million. Kaberle will now collect almost $1.5 million over the next two seasons.
Analysis: The 35-year-old Kaberle had the winning goal in Game 7 of the Cup finals against Edmonton in 2006. He had nine goals and 73 assists with Carolina from 2005-2009. Kaberle had been the subject of trade rumors and was placed on waivers last season. His exit comes after the Hurricanes reshaped their defense by signing Andrew Alberts to a two-year deal and re-acquiring Aaron Ward from Boston. Kaberle might be picked up by another team, but he doesn't have any Fantasy appeal until that happens.

Kaberle scores in rare outing

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle scored a goal and tallied an assist during Tuesday's game against the Islanders. Kaberle, playing in his first game since March 12, scored his first goal of the season on a power play 9:25 into the third.
Analysis: The Hurricanes tried desperately to unload Kaberle earlier this season, but consistently found no takers. He has played just twice since March 1 and has been on the outside of the Hurricanes' rotation. Despite the big night, Kaberle has little to no Fantasy value.

Kaberle placed on waivers

News: The Hurricanes placed defenseman Frantisek Kaberle on waivers on Saturday.
Analysis: This is the second time this season that Kaberle was placed on waivers, having been placed there back in December. We'll see how it plays out this time, but Fantasy owners should not have him active at this time.

Injury gets Kaberle into lineup

News: The Sports Xchange reports D Frantisek Kaberle played in his 200th game with the Hurricanes Saturday against the Bruins, but it came because of a teammate's injury and not based on merit. Since the team had returned to full health, Kaberle had been a healthy scratch for three games until D Tim Gleason's injury. Kaberle picked up an assist against Boston, so he has three points in his last five outings.
Analysis: Kaberle was placed on waivers in December, but with no takers the Hurricanes were able to keep him around. He hasn't been happy about his recent situation, but is acting very professionally about the matter. Until Kaberle starts logging regular PT, he has limited Fantasy value.

Kaberle activated, Conboy sent down

News: The Carolina Hurricanes have activated D Frantisek Kaberle from injured reserve and sent D Tim Conboy back to their AHL affiliate in Albany.
Analysis: Kaberle only missed 10 days with his lower-body injury, and has the ability to contribute in larger Fantasy leagues when healthy. Conboy has no Fantasy value.

Hurricanes put Kaberle on IR

News: The Raleigh News & Observer reports the Hurricanes have placed D Frantisek Kaberle on injured reserve and have called up D Bryan Rodney from the Albany River Rats (AHL).
Analysis: Injuries have really sidetracked Kaberle's career the last few seasons and it doesn't appear his 2008-09 season is in much better shape. He has the ability to contribute in Fantasy when healthy, but isn't worth wasting a roster spot on while on IR. Rodney has no Fantasy value.

Kaberle unable to play Sunday

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle missed a second straight game Sunday against the Capitals because of a lower-body injury. He remains questionable heading into Thursday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Injuries have really sidetracked Kaberle's career the last few seasons and it doesn't appear his 2008-09 season is in much better shape. He has the ability to contribute in Fantasy when healthy, but he remains an injury-risk start at this time.

Kaberle doesn't play Saturday

News: The Sports Xchange reports Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle left in the second period of Thursday night's game against the Penguins with a lower-body injury and didn't return. This puts additional strain on an injury-riddled defense, and it's another setback for Kaberle, who has played in only seven games this season and recently returned from a broken leg.
Analysis: Injuries have really sidetracked Kaberle's career the last few seasons and it doesn't appear his 2008-09 season is in much better shape. He has the ability to contribute in Fantasy when healthy, but he remains an injury-risk start at this time.

Kaberle returns to ice Friday

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle returned to action Friday after being out for over a month with a foot injury. He played 19:11 and finished with an even rating.
Analysis: Injuries have really sidetracked Kaberle's career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. He's worth adding in deeper leagues, as he can be productive when playing well.

Hurricanes activate Kaberle

News: The Hurricanes have activated D Frantisek Kaberle from injured reserve. He was still scratched in Wednesday's game for his 19th straight missed with a fractured foot.
Analysis: Kaberle has three assists in four games this season. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. He's worth adding in deeper leagues, as he can be productive when playing well.

Frantisek Kaberle

Gleason, Kaberle, Eaves still out

News: The Raleigh News & Observer reports that Hurricanes D Tim Gleason, D Frantisek Kaberle and RW Patrick Eaves will not play Wednesday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Luckily for Fantasy owners, none of these three guys have much Fantasy value. Just continue to ignore them until they finally return to action, but don't sweat their injuries too much.

Kaberle, Williams back at practice

News: The Raleigh News & Observer reports that Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle (fractured foot) and RW Justin Williams (achilles) were both back at practice Thursday. Both have yet to be cleared for contact, however.
Analysis: Williams wasn't supposed to be back until January, but he seems to making a superb recovery. "He's way ahead of schedule," coach Peter Laviolette said. "He feels good. There's a lot less motion when he's in that boot as opposed to running or other activities." Don't expect Williams back for another few weeks however, and you can think of Kaberle in the same time frame. Kaberle has some value in deeper leagues as a bench defenseman, while Williams can be a No. 2 or No. 3 Fantasy forward when healthy, but he's a little injury-prone.

Kaberle recovering from broken leg

News: The Sports Xchange reports Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle suffered what's being called a broken leg from a shot that struck him Oct. 17 at Los Angeles. He could miss up to a month of game action.
Analysis: Kaberle has gotten off to a fast start this season with three assists in four games. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. Keep him reserved in Fantasy until further notice.

Frantisek Kaberle

Kaberle still out Thursday

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle (foot) did not return to the lineup Thursday against the Penguins. He has missed the last two games and there has been no timetable set for his return.
Analysis: Kaberle has gotten off to a fast start this season with three assists in four games. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. Continue to keep tabs on Kaberle's status leading up to Week 4 (Oct. 27-Nov. 2).

Kaberle could miss a month

News: The Sports Xchange reports D Frantisek Kaberle suffered an injury when a shot hit his foot Saturday at Los Angeles. Initial reports suggest he could miss up to a month of the season, but the team should have a better idea upon returning home for a few days before its next game.
Analysis: Kaberle has gotten off to a fast start this season with three assists in four games. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. Hopefully this latest setback isn't too bad. When healthy, Kaberle is a low-end Fantasy defenseman. He is an injury-risk start for Fantasy Week 3 (Oct. 20-26) and it is probably best to keep him reserved.

Kaberle doesn't play Sunday

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle didn't play Sunday against the Ducks after leaving Friday's game with a leg injury. He remains day to day and questionable for Thursday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Kaberle has gotten off to a fast start this season with three assists in four games. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. Hopefully this latest setback isn't too bad. When healthy, Kaberle is a low-end Fantasy defenseman. He is an injury-risk start for Fantasy Week 3 (Oct. 20-26).

Kaberle exits with leg injury

News: The Hurricanes lost defenseman Frantisek Kaberle about seven minutes into the middle period Friday against the Kings because of a leg injury after he blocked a slap shot by Kings defenseman Kyle Quincey. Kaberle didn't have a point in 7:46 of ice time and finished at even.
Analysis: Kaberle has gotten off to a fast start this season with three assists in four games. Injuries have really sidetracked his career the last few seasons, but it wasn't long ago that Kaberle was a viable Fantasy defenseman. Hopefully this latest setback isn't too bad.

F. Kaberle assists twice in win

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle assisted twice in Carolina's season-opening 6-4 win over Florida on Friday night.
Analysis: Kaberle had 44 points a few seasons ago, so he is capable of contributing occasionally on the offensive side of things. He remains a low-end Fantasy blue-liner for now, however.

Kaberle on the trade block?

News: The Sports Xchange reports the Carolina Hurricanes could be in the market for a trade that would unload some salary. They did such efficient work in restoring some depth on defense during the early stages of July that they might have overdone it. They had no choice but to act quickly or otherwise risk going into training camp understaffed on defense. But filling those slots, they might have created another issue for concern. Their roster includes players with combined salaries closing in on $50 million, putting them about $5 million above the preferred budgeted amount for owner Peter Karmanos. The most popular names to surface as possible trade bait on defense are Frantisek Kaberle, who has been ordinary since the 2006 championship season, and veteran Niclas Wallin, who reportedly exercised a no-trade clause last year.
Analysis: Kaberle totaled 22 points (two goals) in 80 games last season after playing in just 27 games during an injury-plagued 2006-07. However, he did not show signs of being the 44-point player he was in 2005-06. Kaberle is good at moving the puck, but is nothing more than a low-end Fantasy defenseman, no matter where he plays in 2008-09.

Kaberle records 12th assist

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle tallied an assist and finished at plus-1 during Tuesday's game against the Bruins. He now has 12 assists on the season and two in his last three games.
Analysis: Kaberle has managed to stay relatively injury-free this season, but hasn't reverted back to the player that totaled 44 points in 2005-06. Perhaps he is not going as hard after a serious shoulder injury limited him to 27 games last season. Kaberle still doesn't have a goal this season and is merely a low-end Fantasy flier.

Kaberle on pace for 14 points

News: Hurricanes D Frantisek Kaberle, one of the team's top two defenseman, continues to struggle. He tallied an assist Sunday against the Red Wings, but it was his lone point in his last 14 games. He has no goal and six assists this season and is on pace for just 14 points this season.
Analysis: Kaberle played only 27 games last season because of a shoulder injury and they had offseason knee surgery, but has been active for all 32 games this season. However, he doesn't look like the player that tallied 44 points in 2005-06. He has potential and the Hurricanes continue to play him, but he is merely a low-end Fantasy reserve at this time.

F. Kaberle has rough outing Thurs.

News: The Sports Xchange notes: D Frantisek Kaberle was a season-worst minus-3 on his 34th birthday in the loss to Tampa Bay. He hadn't been any lower than minus-1 in any game this season.
Analysis: Kaberle is a solid play in all Fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he can remain healthy.

Frantisek Kaberle plays Wednesday

News: Kaberle (knee) was able to play in Wednesday's regular season opener against the Canadiens. He was scoreless with a plus-1 rating with one shot on goal in 16:24 of ice time.
Analysis: Kaberle is a solid play in all Fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he can remain healthy. The Hurricanes will be back in action on Friday night against the Penguins.

D Kaberle back for Canes

News: Frantisek Kaberle (knee) was able to suit up for Thursday's preseason game at Columbus. He was scoreless with an even rating and one shot on goal in 16:21 of ice time.
Analysis: The statistics aren't important, but it is good to see him back into the lineup and able to prove his health. He is a must-start in all leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Fantasy Week 1 (Sept. 29-Oct. 7).
