Tomas Kaberle isn't going anywhere, at least not without his approval.

The Toronto Maple Leafs were unable to make a deal that they found suitable for their offensive defencemen, and with Kaberle's no trade clause kicking back in, control of his future falls back to Kaberle.

"While a number of clubs made offers to trade for Tomas, none of them reflected Tomas's value to our team," Leafs general manager Brian Burke said in a statement.  "I understand a period like this is stressful to the player, and we are pleased that there is a resolution, and we can all continue to prepare for the coming season."

The 32-year old defenceman, who has one-year remaining on his contract had seven goals and 42 assists in 82 games last season.
