The Hamhuis dilemma? Does he stay or does he go?

Unless we sign a very solid 2nd pairing dman for a reasonable price, we have no choice but to keep Hamhuis and let him walk next summer. I personally think Hamhuis wants out unless we overpay to keep him. I like worst's number of 3.5 to keep him around, but he is honestly worth more than that.
Hopefully, one of young d prospects will step up big this year playing with Hamhuis, and will be able to hold down the 2nd pairing next season. But in order for this to work Trotz has to give these young guys playing time and a bit of a learning curve. My fear is Poile will sign a cheap vet, similar to de Vries, and Trotz will pair him with Hamhuis, leaving Klein/Sulzer/Franson/etc. with limited playing time.
