2010 NHL Entry Draft: Don't expect a Toronto trade

Jun 25, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

Tomas Kaberle has been a mainstay on the trade rumor mills all offseason, as the Maple Leafs look to move him before his NTC kicks in on July 1.

Just don’t expect that trade to happen today.

Brian Burke, talking to the media here in Los Angeles less than an hour before the draft kicks off, said that nothing was in the works for a Maple Leafs trade. There were a number of rumors flying about concerning Kaberle last night and this morning, but it seems that’s all they were.

As we countdown to free agency starting on July 1, however, expect those rumors to kick into full gear.

Burke has said he’s received a number of offers for Kaberle, but nothing to make him pull the trigger before the draft.
