Next year is his last year of contract. If we get a decent return, I wouldn't mind parting with him. The thing is, he may have a big influence on the room. We don't know what kind of presence he has on this team and you wouldn't want to mess with the chemistry either..
We don't really know how much of a leader and good Captain he is.

But what we know for sure is that he is still making way too much money for the type of output he's providing. He's not in Selanne or Koivu class. With a lower cap ceiling next season, he's gonna be even harder to trade. Unless he decides to retire, we are stucked with him for another two seasons.
