Don't you realize how valuable someone like that is?? I hope we keep him for a long time even if he doesn't develop into a 75 pt getter. This guy screams devotion and hard work and raw talent.

As Cartman from South Park would say..... "F you guys, I'm going home..."
This is a bit silly, isn't it?

I don't think I've seen a single poster who "wants" to get rid of Jake--but there's a general recognition that, among the young forwards on the team (Giroux, Couturier, Schenn, Simmonds, Read, Voracek, etc.), he has the best combination of value and replaceability.

I'm wary of trading him now that JVR is gone, but I wouldn't put him off limits either, particularly if it is in a trade for either 1) a young, top-pairing defenseman, or 2) a young upgrade at wing.

I think that's closer to the dominant attitude that what you suggest.
