Well I did say right below what you highlighted that he could have some interest at the deadline since we see how nuts the deadline can get at times plus much of his salary for the year will be paid. But I don't think there will be much interest in him in the off season when he's still owed 8.75M, granted like I said you never know what another GM will be willing to do but for me I would be surprised if there was much interest in him this summer unless it's a case were we take back something close in salary.
