For allthe gripe RJ is getting, he had a great season in college last year - his stock hasn't dropped at all, just the fact that he can't get signed is the problem. A 2nd round pick? Fuhgettaboutit.
I would consider moving him mind you. I'd like to get Mike Johnson out of Phoenix (maybe as a deadline aquisition?), and I'd move Umberger to get him, but beyond something like that (good 2nd line RW'er), I'd just as soon as hang onto RJ and try to get him signed.
Do you realize Johnson is Phoenix's best scorer and had a great season last year?
Why would Phoenix trade Johnson for an unsigned-ready-to-become-UFA prospect?
