I guess he's not one of those imaginary 6'-6", 250lbs guys who are always the fastest player on the ice and score 40G and 100 pts a season.....so just a solid 3rd-liner then.
There's nothing wrong with being a second/third-line 'tweener' who can put up 40-50 points and play in all three zones, but those types of guys aren't so indispensable that you should refuse to move them for a young goalie with big upside when your team's most glaring hole for nearly a decade has been between the pipes.
