A Downie / Kaberle Connection?

Does anyone else find it a little suspicious that Steve Downie is unsigned, and Tomas Kaberle ( a puck moving defenseman on the Maple Leafs) is being shopped until Sunday?  I saw some rumors that Brian Burke was interested in Downie, and I know Steve Yzerman must be well aware of Kaberle's availability.  The thing is Yzerman isn't going to be able to pull off any jedi mind tricks on Burke.  Burke won't trade unless he's getting some value back whether it  be Ryan Malone or Downie.  We need a puck mover and Downie fits the Burke mold.  I was just surprised that no one has really pointed this  out .....

Sure, Stevie "Y" has said he wants Downie in a uniform as soon as possible, but the situation seems eerily similar to the situation Foster was in.  Steve said he would give Foster an offer, and we kept hearing from Foster's agent that there seemed to be no interest on the side of the GM.  I feel like there is a lack of urgency, and Steve is holding out until he knows Kaberle is unavailable for sure.  I'm so use to the cowboy era, and everything being out in the open for better or worse.  I guess the lack of obnoxious noise that we are all so use to is what  makes Steve such a good GM so soon.  The less you speak the the more intelligent  you seem to be sometimes....
