How about Scott Gomez ?

What GM is going to buy that? Putting him on waivers and some GM taking the salary off your hands is doing you favor enough.
Thats why they shouldn't trade him right now, hopefully he can build his value up. Teams are also more desperate around the trade deadline so you're more likely to get a little bit better of a deal if you wait.

Draft picks are a valuable trade asset though.

Say we want to get a defenseman off of a team that's aiming to sell a roster player. Are they more likely to want an impending UFA who's been a healthy scratch a handful of times or a 3rd/4th round draft pick?

True, I wouldn't mind a scenario like that where Tambo turns around and wheels for a player from someone else. We also have two 2nds this year as assets as well. I'd like to think that Whitney is worth more to a team then a 3rd or a 4th but it all depends on said teams current situation.

We have a lot of young players coming up who need to be playing somewhere, I'm worried that we're going to have too many prospects which leads to their development being stunted due to lack of opportunity and contract caps.

Edmonton sure has the ability to turn its players into worthless junk that nobody wants. Remember Souray.

Tamby will probably get a 3rd because the man can't manage an asset to save his life

If you have watched Whitney at all this season you know by not playing him the team improves immensley...

Without any exageration every bottom pairing that does not include Whitney has looked a lot better. If the coach is serious about winning you can not play a guy and just hope he doesnt $%^& the bed like he has been all this year and all last year.

I don't mind keeping him around for now as a 8th d-man if he's willing to keep trying to improve himself. If he's just going to be a whiner, ship him off for whatever you can get for him.

I don't think these players realize that responding to stuff like that only makes things worse. Honestly if I were a player I don't think I'd even be on twitter and if were I'd hardly ever write anything.

In lieu of his insensitive, uncalled for comment check out what he tweeted just the other day.

I guess that he didn't learn anything about bullying from watching that movie.

Yea, Whitney's a joke. Hope he's gone by the end of the week. Trade him for Futures or bury him in the minors. That's classless.

Ya its one thing if you're going to use it like say Jones and give updates, respond to fans questions, and chirp the odd teammate, but you can't be rude to fans no matter what they might have said

Guys shouldn't be lipping him off on twitter to begin with. Just because he's a professional hockey player doesn't mean he has to take **** from the fans. Id do the same thing, guy asked to be bashed.

The fan worded it awkwardly but he wasn't bashing him. Whitney completely overreacted.

He should've just pulled a Jim Rome and "blocked" them.
