Realistically speaking, he could find a much better situation for himself imho. This is all assuming the team doesn't turn things around...
I have to disagree here, I think Dion will be invaluable to Matt, Morgan and Stu down the line. The guy I think might be dangled is Jake perhaps one day, but that is way down the line.

Dion, Rielly, Finn, and Percy could be one of the better top 4 combos in the near future.

Dion has not had much support here during his time, and he really has not played badly. Playing run and scramble with Komi, Lebda, Schenn, Kaberle, Liles for support couldn't have been easy. He could be a monster again with one of Percy, Finn, or Reilly. Having a vet is invaluable.
