It's odd because a lot of folks, myself included, believed the Hurricanes were interested in acquiring a defenceman, not shipping one out.
Definitely interested in acquiring a defenseman, but we have a glut of RHD and puck-movers at this point.
McBain is viewed as the most tradeable in the group, and has been somewhat in the doghouse for a while now due to his lack of physicality and stagnant offensive production.
Personally I'd rather keep him unless the return was significant. I don't think this is a guy we trade for a 2nd or anything of that nature. We're going to want a roster player back, probably a solid defensive defenseman.
edit: Also, it's not clear if he's being aggressively shopped or if it's a matter of his simply being available for inquiries.
I think the Wild would likely be interested in McBain. No idea on what it would take, though. The Wild have stated in no uncertain terms that they aren't willing to move their higher end prospects and I would assume their first round pick.
Would also believe that Bouchard, Stoner, Scandella, and perhaps a few others could be in play.
