Schlemko is an established NHL defensman in Phoenix's eyes at this point. His early years, he was just a call up. These past two years however, he has turned into a solid 3rd pairing guy. We don't NEED to trade him, hence we probably won't.

He won't fetch a big name player, and the only reason Phoenix trades a defenseman is for immediate help. The most Schlemko fetches is a mid round draft pick, or B-C level prospect. He's worth more than that, so we'll keep him.

We expect players like Morris, and possibly even Klesla to be in trade talks, because they are not dice rolls, and teams pretty much know what they are getting and what to give for them.

We expect prospects like Rundblad, Stone, Summers, Murphy and possibly even Gormley to be in trade talks because they have high potential, and could fetch a decent return.

Schlemko is right in the middle of those groups.
