Generally speaking, players you "throw in" a deal, especially ones you don't even care about throwing in, don't have a lot of value (especially if the other team already has 2 goalies better than he).

Boston, rightly or wrongly, thinks they can contend this year. They aren't giving up their best defenseman for a huge downgrade and a prospect. As has been said, they have at least 3 good defensive prospects of their own. If anything they need an established defenseman.
