No, we just understand that other teams aren't stupid. If they think Butch is as fragile as you do, they won't trade anything for him ever. He has literally no trade value. We get that you desperately want to try get some value for someone before "losing him for nothing" but there's no trade value. The best value we can get out of him is his play on the ice while he's healthy. If he breaks down midway through the season, we'll juggle the lines or call up a prospect who has had that much more time developing. We literally lose nothing, but gain his play for while he's healthy. The cap space doesn't help us this year and he's off the books by next season, so there's just no benefit to moving him.
