Leafs open to trading Garnet Exelby. So?

Garnet Exelby, who's currently 9th on the Leafs defensive depth chart, is on the trading block.  Exelby is 24th out of 25 Leafs in terms of tough minutes this year.  Even so, his Corsi number is below the team average, and he takes more penalties than every non-goon on the roster.  Exelby does kill penalties, but even there, he's been on the third unit this season.  None of this is out-of-character for Exelby, either, so good luck moving him.  Basically Brian Burke is just saying that he's not trading anyone!
