Hainsy will get a decent return because he's in demand. in demand means short supply. short supply means less chance of getting something equal or better.

frankly my wishlist would go
Improvement on Hainsy + draft pick
Improvement on Hainsy
Wash + Draft pick
downgrade + draft pick
downgrade

Unfortunately i think the bottom three are more likely to happen this off season then we're willing to believe.

That being said, not moving Hainsey doesn't mean he'll resign with us, so i guess he's almost worth shipping out no matter what.

Either way
I think the organization will have a good read on whether or not Hainsey would be willing to come back next year and act accordingly. We simply can't afford to lose a top 4 D for nothing.

My gut feeling is that he will choose to move on, but that is baseless speculation.
