Sources tell TSN the Toronto Maple Leafs have received what the team considers to be a significant offer for defenceman Tomas Kaberle.
There are few details available, however the offer arrived unexpectedly Thursday afternoon and is believed to be from one of the teams who may have been in the hunt, trying to acquire the negotiating rights to Florida's Jay Bouwmeester. The unidentified team offered a player and a draft pick for Kaberle.
In addition to the offer received earlier this afternoon, sources say the Toronto Maple Leafs have also heard from at least three other teams who have checked in and asked Leafs GM, Brian Burke to name his price.
Toronto had originally intended on holding on to Kaberle until after the July 1 free agent frenzy in hope of attracting a better package from a team that wasn't able to land a free agent defenceman.
Sources say the Leafs are seriously considering the offer while waiting to see what other interest materializes in the coming hours.
