You think the Red Wings can do no wrong. This must be a hard one for you to explain.

I'm just saying you're not trading for a player who's signed for 10 more years. If you screw up and lose some solid assets for a guy who flames out, at least you're not tied to him and his cap hit forever.
I'm saying you don't trade solid assets away unless you're confident he's worth his salary.
So I don't think having only one year left makes Jaybo a better risk.

I think it makes him a worse risk. Because he might take off to play in Edmonton or Toronto next year.
