But, then again, where would he play if not the top 6 next year? He doesn't play a bottom 6 role. So do they slot him in the top 6 and watch him thrive or struggle? Do they slot him bottom 6 and see him look out of place because that isn't his game? He's a big question mark in my eyes.
The best way he would fit on this team would be as a trading chip. He has value and adding in one of the first rounders he should net us that missing 2C. It's almost painfully obvious. This team is built to win now. Waiting 1-3 more years to see how MJ develops only wastes more years of this core group.

The major problem is GMGM. As I said last winter he is an assets hoarder and won't give up what's needed to make those crucial moves.
