Well, that's the thing though, isn't it? It's a catch-22. If he does get better, why would we trade him, and if he doesn't, why would anyone give up a lot to get him? A decision has to be made either for or against the trade, and in this era, where a lot more information is available to the GMs than was the case in the past, we're not going to fool anyone. The only difference is going to be in how different GMs perceive what he's worth, but even if waiting a year tells us more on what kind of a player he's going to be, it also tells everyone else.
