The reason people want to trade MDZ is the Goldilocks effect... most feel that he's somewhat expendable (especially now that Moore has been aquired) and he has value to other teams. It's a better thought than trading our crap for amazing value.

Clowe is a different story. He's now suffered two concussions in what? 3 weeks? He HAD value, we gave a good ransom to aquire him, but bringing him back requires upping the ransom again (another 2nd). It's not a good gamble. Most people feel cutting him loose, saving the 2nd and the $ he will command and aquiring someone else.

If you give another 2nd, resign Clowe to what will undoubtedly be a large pricetag and he plays 30 games next yr. what's the damn point?! Aside from trying up valuable cap space and crapping away yet another pick.
