Because Whitney has more value. He is going to be part of a bidding war if he is moved. And even that may not be a given, since there was talk earlier this month about the 'Canes talking contract with Whitney.
Remember, Carolina (despite their place in the current standings) isn't one of those teams that's used to going with youth. They'd probably rather do what Philly did a few years ago, take this one-time high draft pick (they want Tyler Seguin, apparently, because of his ties to Karmanos's Plymouth Whalers) and then re-tool quickly.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Whitney situation doesn't go down to the wire, with Carolina attempting to re-sign him all the way to March 3.
