They have consistently said his value is a 2nd round pick and a prospect (not elite prospect). As these guys have salaries paid by the Flames, I think they are closer to what the Flames are thinking than some random bloggers.
The GM most likely to panic is Feaster because the new CBA might force teams to get to a lower team cap. A bunch of teams might be having fire sales or huge buyouts for some expensive players. The guys on the radio said that the return right now might be a lot higher than it will be when a new CBA is signed.
If this is the truth I have no problems offering a second and a prospect for him. That would be a great deal for any team acquiring him. Jbo takes a ton of **** on these boards, and yes he has not lived up to expectations, but he could be very valuable to the Flyers. He will give Kimmo time to rest and eat a ton of minutes that otherwise Kimmo would be logging.
Also if there is one place JBo could find his offensive game again, it's in the Flyers high paced, high octane system.
