I agree completely. Although I wouldn't mind having him back next year, he is getting up there in the years and IF a top prospect can be obtained I would rather see the team get another promising young player to help build for the future.

For example in the trade rumors section when someone asked what their teams would be willing to offer for Shanny, some Vancouver fans offered Luc Bourdon. If someone of that caliber was being offered you can't pass it up for 30 more games (or even one more season) of Shanny. Although I doubt he would bring back that high of a return because of his age and is a UFA next year.
