The New York Post is reporting that the New Jersey Devils may be a strong bidder for the services of Maple Leafs' defenceman Tomas Kaberle.

The Post quotes sources who say that Devils' general manager Lou Lamoriello could be targeting the Toronto blueliner for a trade in the coming weeks. Kaberle has one year remaining on his contract and an upcoming window in which his no-trade clause will be lifted.

Toronto GM Brian Burke has sent an e-mail to his fellow general managers that outlines the parameters of the lifting of the no-trade window, which will run from the NHL Draft until the end of July.

Kaberle is set to make $4.25 million next season before becoming an unrestricted free agent next summer. Toronto is rumoured to be interested in receiving at least a high draft pick in return for the 32-year old, but New Jersey traded away its first pick to obtain Ilya Kovalchuk this spring. The Devils' first pick is in the second round, 38th overall.
