Busy day so far in Northeast

Three-fifths of the Northeast Division has made a trade so far today, with the biggest move being Boston's acquisition of Toronto defenseman Tomas Kaberle.

Kaberle has been in trade talks for well over a year, and he finally waived his no-trade clause to join the Bruins. Kaberle, who is the second all time in scoring among Leafs defensemen behind Borje Salming (and his cool helmet), goes to Boston in exchange for Joe Colborne, a first-round draft pick and a conditional pick, TSN has reported.

To clear room for Kaberle, the Bruins have sent defenseman Mark Stuart and forward Blake Wheeler to Atlanta for center Rich Peverley and defenceman Boris Valabik.

Ottawa, meanwhile, picked up goaltender Craig Anderson from Colorado in exhange for netminder Brian Elliott.

The Sabres and Montreal are the two division teams that have not made a deal today.
