He either has value, and expected production, or no value and expect very little.
The production from PMB is if he stays healthy. He could easily put up 70 points if he's healthy all year. However, the issue is that we're the only team whose doctors can check him out. His value is the same as Sturm's was, and he was traded for future considerations at one point. The fact of the matter is, no one would take our word on Bouchard's health, and if we expect him to be healthy it wouldn't make sense to trade him. If Fletcher were to shop him around, teams would suspect that means negative things about his health, which would drive his value down.
