You are assuming that RJ will return to a 20 goal scorer. He barely did that last season and hasn't done anything this season to suggest that was a fluke. What you are asking for may never come. While I don't find it likely, we could very well be looking at the new 12-15 goal RJ grinder.

The front office better be looking at this situation very closely and not using the "I have faith" method we have used in the past.
I recognize that he may never be that player again. However, I would wait until he actually breaks out of his slump before trading him. He may not return to his previous level of play, but at the very least we should wait to see his play improve somewhat before moving him.
