I love DZ and am perfectly happy keeping him, but I get why he's the brunt of many proposals/etc. He's an extremely valuable piece, and one who could be considered expendable with the glut of high level defenseman this team has.

Eventually, someone is going to have to be traded keeping all of these players until their contracts run out if bad management. Value has to be capitalized on. Now might be the best time to trade DZ, although, I will say that if he breaks out next year for 50+ points, with his contract being up, it'll be interesting to see what happens with Girardi being Group IV and Staal being one year away from Group IV himself.
