Anything around 5-6 mill. on a long term deal will be fair. You don't trade a guy that is almost a #1 D. We have 2 top tier #2 D in Hamhuis and Edler. You let these guys develop into a #1 or you can consider it a blessing to have these guys anchor your d pairings.
I see nothing wrong in dealing him - *PROVIDED* you already have a right side top four defenseman to replace him (I don't mean a left side D who hasn't played more than one season at the NHL level - least of all one who's currently suffering from a major concusssion).
