You have a team with Timonen and Bouwmeester stabilizing the D...you have a lot of options, and a lot of flexibility.

Hard decisions will have to be made going forward regardless of whether Bouwmeester is here or not. It is what it is...but I'd rather make those decisions with Bouwmeester around than not.
Which is why I'd just deal Coburn for J-Bouw right now and add on a little.

I mean, if teams realize that we have to trade Coburn, we're going to get back 50 cents on the dollar.

You're the one crying about asset management, but trading for J-Bouw without resolving Coburn's future is just that, bad asset management because you're going to let a young guy with a lot of potential go for little/nothing.

At least adding Coburn into the deal would allow us to keep JVR who's realistically a lot better than anything we'd get for Coburn.
