All this conjecture on his return to form on a 15-game sample none the less.
J-Bo is a ideal #2 defenseman. He's overpaid by about 1.5-2M per season, so teams are going to have to be in a position to accept he's not going to deliver on the full monetary value of his contract and that drastically reduces his actual trade value as a result.
Blue Chip Prospect + First Rounder.
That's probably where his value lies today. If he had a more reasonable contract he'd fetch more, or if he played up to the value of his contract.
