He does seem a bit quicker to the puck and less afraid. It hasn't exactly added any huge improvement to his game, though. But he's also getting far fewer minutes and somebody else took over the PP very effectively. I don't think he really hurts us as a #6/7/8 defenseman.

But of course, at the same time, we know now that we're definitely buying him out in the off-season, if he remains on the team that long. So if there's any offer on him at all out there at any point before the trade deadline, I'd say take it. I wouldn't wait until the deadline to maximize return either. I'm not sure he'll play too much before then to improve his value. So take the first offer that comes along and run with it.
the only trade i make is for picks
no salary coming back
the whole point is to gain cap relief with him off the books
