Futures is good. If we forget about the future package that is to be had it's no big deal, just take the man back. He doesn't even play for us anymore. Press box is a great place to watch the game though...
Last time Shelley was traded, I believe it was for Future Considerations. I would expect something similar this time, or maybe Shelley and a pick for a middling player/prospect.
Was for a 6th round pick, which ultimately was traded to Atlanta along with Clay Wilson for Jason Williams, who helped get us into the playoffs.
He's always welcome in the city, but on the team? Can't imagine he'd have a place to play.
Portzline has an obsession with enforcers of the CBJ past, anyways. I mean, for G-d's sake, he still talks constantly about Zenon Konopka as if giving him up was the dumbest move in CBJ history.
Only way this could even begin to make the tinest amount of sense is if it was the followup to trading away Boll. Which I don't exactly expect to happen. Either that or Porty's talking about Jody retiring mid-season and joining the broadcast team.
Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
