I would absolutely be in favor of trading Christensen for a pick or a prospect. Heck, he's not even our first spare at the NHL level right now - as of today, we have 13 NHL tested forwards without him. And that's BEFORE you factor in Weise, Thomas, Hagelin, etc. (And also before you factor in a potential signing just before camp like Prospal.)

If it were 2010 and we were still that thin down the middle, I'd be more hesitant. But with Richards on board and Boyle's development (and AA and Stepan a year older), center is no longer a position of weakness. In fact, given that Dubi, Rupp and Avery can all play there in a pinch, we've got plenty of coverage - if we make a move, it should be to upgrade one of the wings.

Do you give him away for a 7th round pick in 2016? No. But if someone makes you an offer of a reasonable asset for your 2nd spare forward - especially when you've got depth in the minors - I say you take it.
