Agree that in most cases, there is NO way that J-Bo gets traded.
What people need to realize though is that J-Bo is going to be a UFA after the upcoming season, and there have been unconfirmed "rumblings" that J-Bo might not want to resign with the Panthers. If that's the case, he can file for arbitration, get a 1 year contract, and then become the most in-demand UFA that I can remember. If that's the case - there is nothing that FLA can do, except trade him, and the sooner the better.
Assuming that the above is true - I think that Martin needs to find out where JB would consider signing an extension, and try to get a deal done. Any deal would require a VERY good young d-man, + 1st , + good young player or NHL ready prospect.
If the "unhappy in FLA" is a bunch of crap, expect JB to sign a Phaneuf-lite contract here shortly.
