If a player gets traded it is to fix a need that a team has, CAR's need is on defense and Skinner could help rectify that problem.
Because JR just signed him to a 6 year extension which hasn't even kicked in yet. He's not even thinking about trading Skinner. Skinner was the asked to be included in the Nash deal and JR pulled out. So you think we'd trade him for a mid round pick and a prospect? No. I don't anyways. JR may start to change his mind a few years into this extension, but Skinner is not going anywhere anytime soon for anything other than overpayment.

If Phoenix wants to move some salary I'd take back Klesla. The only forward that would be attractive coming back would be Boedker but I've seen a lot of Phoenix fans prefer taking a bullet to the face than moving Boedker.
I'd ask for Yandle. Considering Nash wasn't worth Skinner to JR, I doubt even Yandle would pry Skinner away.

And a sidenote: Just because a GM doesn't deal a player for a certain value return doesn't necessarily make that player that value. It just makes the GM stubborn.
