While it may seem JP is not a fit on the ice for the Preds, his professional attitude in the locker room may be what's keeping him here. It shows the young guys no ice time is guaranteed but if you do get benched, this is how you handle it. Maybe it rubs off on Wilson as to how to be a professional. While that's an expensive lesson with a limited budget, is it worth $4 million this year to keep teaching Wilson and the youngsters how to handle themselves for the next 10 years? I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with anyone on this, just presenting an angle that might be looked at.
I also think Poile has explored options with other teams and since JP has a NMC or NTC, I forget which one, and JP and his family have a love for Nashville, he may not want to be moved or the teams that want him he is not fond of their city.
Who knows, maybe he has one last gasp in him if paired with the right linemates. You never know.
