This is from yesterday.

Rutherford said he had a team call to inquire about Babchuk a few weeks ago, but said that team has not called back. Babchuk, a restricted free agent, has rejected the Canes' offer of a one-year, $1 million contract.

Rutherford said any trade for Babchuk likely would not include the Canes receiving a forward in return, saying it would probably involve a prospect or draft picks.
All someone needs to do is sign Babchuk to an offer sheet and I'm sure JR will gladly take the compensation. I would think the number Babchuk is looking for would equal the Canes getting a 2nd round pick. The fact that this hasn't happened yet, leads me to believe Babchuk's agent has not been able to find a deal he likes.

JR appears to be just waiting for the deal to come to him.
