I think there is way too much focus on trading Commodore. Just because he wants a trade doesn't mean they have to trade him. Sheldon Souray wanted a trade. You think Jeff Finger has been asking for a trade?

Getting rid of him is not addition by subtraction. Getting rid of him is neutral. He isn't bringing much value, but he doesn't hurt them either. I think the only gain is budget space. I'd be shocked if Howson bends over and takes it so he can trade Commodore.
