To serve what purpose?
Although I'm not necessarily a supporter of trading Asham I do acknowledge that it's a good option. Here's why:

-Due to an excess of deserving forwards he's been a healthy scratch. The only foreseeable way that he'll get playing time is by rotating in and out of the lineup with Powe (personally I think Asham would be the better choice over Powe). When teams have an excessive amount of players they usually either send them to the minors or trade them to a place where the player will get to play.

-He's on the last year of his contract and he's unlikely to be re-signed so why carry him with us this year if he's not going to be on the roster full-time?

-It would free up contract and cap space while fetching something in return all for a player that we don't need anymore. I'd imagine Asham could fetch at least a second and we're short on picks so why not?
