'Canes GM calls out Kaberle

TORONTO - For more than a decade, Tomas Kaberle was an institution at a Maple Leafs-Boston Bruins game.

Now he’s in the doghouse in Carolina.

Up until last February, Kaberle had been a Leaf for his entire career. Then he was traded to the Bruins, the team he would go on to win a Stanley Cup with.

The Bruins opted not to re-sign Kaberle during the off-season, allowing him to ink a three-year, $12.75 million US deal with the Carolina Hurricanes.

But things have not been good for Kaberle on Tobacco Road. Through 25 games he has just five points and is minus-12, causing Canes GM Jim Rutherford to call out the veteran defenceman in public on Wednesday.

“He has to figure out a way to get out of it or he won’t be playing with the Hurricanes long,” Rutherford told XM Home Ice radio.

Maybe the Leafs and Bruins knew something when they let him go.
