It won't have any effect on his trade value. He's been in the NHL a while. The book is out on him, and any half-decent GM is going to know exactly what they're buying: a big winger who can give you 20-30 goals and 50 points, but is guaranteed to do it in bunches.

If Regier is close on finishing a deal, it makes sense that they wouldn't want the guy they're shipping out getting hurt.

It could also just be RR scratching him because he sucks though.
