The only reason you've seen that is because

1) He had an off year

and, most importantly,

2) He's the only player on the Canucks that could get back some value who doesn't have an NTC (he does, but it doesn't kick in until July 1).

We also have two other LH defenceman in Hamhuis and Garrison so that particular position is one of strength.

Hence the multiple trade proposals. It isn't a reflection of his abilities when he's on his game. It's due to circumstance and a desire for a large shakeup.
