We should try and package him into a deal to get a top4 D-man at the deadline imo. If we wait to long he's going to lose all his value and we will end up trading him down the road for a 2nd or 3rd round draft pic, or just simply lose him to free agency.

Discuss??
Please show us how he is injury prone.

76 games with Hamilton in 04-05, 80 games in 05-06, 82 games last year. Are you going to blame him for falling into the boards and pretty much breaking his ankle in 06-07? He still played 61 games. Are you going to blame him for getting hit awkwardly in the shoulder? Two very different injuries in a span of 5 years is not injury prone.
