The Carolina Hurricanes have reportedly traded defenseman Tomas Kaberle to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defenseman Jaroslav Spacek.

Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said last week that he was not happy with Kaberle's play and if he continued down his current path he wouldn't be with the club for much longer. Rutherford found a partner in Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier, who has acquired a player in Kaberle that has no goals, 9 assists and a minus-12 rating in 29 games.

In return, the Hurricanes are getting Spacek, who has 3 assists and a plus-2 rating in 12 games this season. Spacek, though, hasn't played since Nov. 12 due to an upper-body injury, but he was cleared for contact earlier this week.

Kaberle did not even help the B's last yr. He lazy and has a attitude problem surprised the habs wanted him

On the ice, it's a great deal for Montreal. Off the ice, it's great for Carolina, since they just cleared 2 years at $4.25M each off their cap, plus saved a bit of change this year. Got to think they'll put that money to good use this offseason. They have to, given the severely reduced odds that they make the playoffs with the new structure.
