Weâ€™ve partnered up with Pension Plan Puppets to bring to you a Player Review series, where we will be evaluating and grading the 2009-10 season for every Leaf who featured in a significant number of games for the Blue and White last season, with an eye towards 2010-11. Next up we feature Tomas Kaberle, profiled by Chemmy:
“The Summary: Where to start with Tomas Kaberle? He’s a four time all star including the last three times the games were played. He’s second all time in scoring for Toronto Maple Leafs defensemen.
Kaberle’s scoring was instrumental in the Leafs first win of the season when he had a goal and four assists as part of a hot streak that saw him put up 22 points in his first 20 games. The opposite side of that coin is that to finish the season Tomas Kaberle scored two goals and had seven assists in 33 games; a stretch that saw the Leafs play 93 pt pace hockey. His slump started before the arrival ofÂ Dion Phaneuf but our new captain’s arrival begs the question: does Tomas Kaberle have a role on the Leafs in the future?
