Why are some of these trade proposal include Semin and Harding? Both are UFA after this season. Howson isn't a great GM but I don't think he's that stupid to take on a UFA as one of the main pieces.

I would love to do a Carter + for Yandle type of deal. Carter and Yandle have similar cap hits and Yandle is locked up long term so he can't leave Columbus via UFA, which is 1 key thing for the Blue Jackets.

I wonder if he has more value now until the deadline or after the end of the season. Only problem is if we wait until the end of the season, he could pull *a Pronger and lower is trade value much, much more.
*Pronger asked for a trade from Edmonton during the season. Lowe told him to play out the season to see if he would change his mind. After the Cup loss, Pronger and his wife went to Mexico and then his agent leaked out that he wanted out to one of the reporters. Then the reporter broke the news and made it public.
