We basically can't afford to trade him.
I don't see him resigning here unless we overpay again and even then to be honest. It's not that he has any bad feelings to the organization, it's just he's 30 now and I think he would prefer to move on to a team that is a lock for a playoff berth at this stage of his career.
We've wasted most of his prime years on this "rebuild". And the fact is, he's just getting in the way of Yakupov's development the longer he stays here.
If a 3rd is all you can get for him, you take it and wish him the best. We open up $5 million in cap room in the summer too.
