To be clear, Columbus can send him down to Portland any time they want. If he plays 10 games the first year of his ELC kicks in. It doesn't commit him to being in Columbus. The real issue is does Columbus want him to get to RFA 1 year sooner.

I think he's shown he can play in the league. I'm a little surprisd he's played so much better on the wing but that likely only validates the fact that playing center in the world's best league takes a lot.

I hope he stays. I think he can grow and be a contributor.
