What makes you believe they're being "underutilized"?

Last year they faced by the far the toughest minutes of any Blue Jackets pairing, with a 45% zone start, yet still were the only 2 with a positive corsi on the team

They have had a rough start this year, but they still should be the go to pairing in Columbus

With Murray returning, the Blue Jackets have a very nice defensive core, but they really need forward help, and since JJ will probably bring back the most assets, it makes a lot of sense to trade him. Position of strength for a position of weakness etc
