You have a free agent saying he wants to be in Toronto

there is nothing out there available for Barbosa that is more useful to us than himself. Long or short term. And no, clearing capspace is not useful
I'm confused. How is trading him for a late first rounder, or even the cap space required to sign WC, not more valuable than holding onto him for the rest of the year? Remember, at the end of the year, no matter what team he is on, it doesn't affect our ability to re-sign him.
