I'm no Hawker, but I'll answer your question. Without looking at FA, there is no one to fill his role. Even if Postma and Redmond develop into fringe top 4 d-men, I don't think either could fill the specific role that Hainsey fills (most notably on the PK).

You probably can't answer this, but do you think Hainsey would re-sign here? If I was given some level of confidence that he would, then I would be a lot less willing to devote mental energy towards what his trade value might be.
