Well, at least no one can accuse readers of TheBruinsBlog.net of overreacting to a bad loss.
Despite the 5-2 defeat at Toronto and Tomas Kaberle’s invisibility — other than his major gaffes in his own end — in what might’ve been the Bruins’ worst performance of the year, readers of this blog are still being patient with the veteran defenseman.
Given what you've seen so far, would you do the Kaberle trade again today?

It seems most readers want to wait until after the playoffs to rate the Kaberle trade. And you can’t blame them, because that’s what Kaberle was brought here to do — aid the Bruins’ effort to go deeper this spring. But since his arrival, this team’s been stumbling and now only has three weeks to pick up its play. Kaberle is plus-4 with just three assists in 13 Bruins games.
Maybe I shouldn’t have put the “wait and see” option to get an even better indicator of where Kaberle stands with the masses right now.
