    Why would Colorado or Dallas want him? They're both in the same boat as Minnesota in that they don't have a hole on their PP. The league - especially anyone who thinks they're contenders - is loaded with puck-moving defensemen who can run a PP. Shatty doesn't fix anything for anyone. If you wouldn't trade for him on Minny, I don't think there's a fit anywhere.
    That's a great way to pretend to be happy with whatever the return is when they eventually trade him. Of course, the sheer process of them doing so would completely negate your insistance that his value is "completely gone," but narrative gonna narrative.

    That's a good, pointless deflection. If you can't name a team and a price, then you can't say someone is an asset.

    Is Brendan Smith an asset too? These guys can get moved as cap dumps, not for a return.
