"Anybody can be bought out, but I don't worry about things I can't control," he told the Montreal Gazette. "I just want to play my game, move the puck forward and help this team make the playoffs."
Kaberle, who spent part of the lockout playing for Kladno with teammate Tomas Plekanec in the Czech Republic, is excited to be back on the ice in Montreal.
The Canadiens acquired Kaberle from Carolina last season, and while he performed fairly well for the Habs, he's expecting a better showing this year.
"I feel a lot better than last year," he said.
Kaberle, 34, has one-year left on his contract beyond this season at a cap hit of $4.25 million. He'll be paid $4.5 million in 2013-14.
