Fans seem to have much better reads on availability on a team that is doing well or great. On teams that are ******** the bed, they tend to be all over the map. The 'unique' skillset argument is the most commonly used one with fan favorite players who are performing like crap. Then they get traded anyway

Clutterbuck on the other hand is having a career season.

That is why I don't start mainboard threads for trades like that though, because the team in despair almost always is in denial mode and overvalues their players. Also keep in mind DW and Yzerman are good friends, though we haven't seen them trade yet, I imagine we will at some point.

All speculation of course.
