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.
I understand that, but all I'm saying is that he is not a #1 defenseman. If he were, your fan base would not be entertaining the idea of trading him, despite the realities you just stated, because #1 defensemen are invaluable in this league and simply aren't traded. You build your team around them, not ship them off because your team needs a shakeup.
