One solid summer at Gary Roberts camp and Jamie McBain becomes who he should be....unfortunately he'll be on the lakes of Minnesota drinking beer with his PhD candidate girlfriend.

I've been a stalwart Jamie McBain defender because I have always felt his missteps have been magnified and his successes have been minimized. He remains a very good offensive D-man...who gets pushed around on the boards....and that perceived lack of toughness is unforgivable on these boards.

So I've come to the conclusion that failing some sort of summer miracle (a la Gary Roberts camp), he's a pretty valuable, tradable asset. I just don't know what we can hope to get for him. My guess is there's a deal with McBain, a solid prospect, and a draft pick that gets us a good prospect back and a middling draft pick in return.
