Give it up for Kaberle: Schenn

SUNRISE, Fla. Luke Schenn wants Maple Leaf fans to give Tomas Kaberle the rousing ovation he deserves on Saturday night.

The Leafs plan to have a video tribute for Kaberle during a stoppage in play in honour of the long-time Toronto defenceman, who returns to the ACC to face his former team for the first time since being dealt to the Boston Bruins last month.

Schenn hopes Kaberle gets a similar warm welcome from the capacity crowd.

The most comparable guy I can think of who got the same type of respect was Mats Sundin, Schenn said. I think it was my first year when they cheered him when he came back with Vancouver.

Both were two well respected players in their own way who have been a huge part of Toronto. Obviously Mats was the captain here, but Kabbys obviously in the same ball park when it comes to what he meant to the Toronto organization.
