Whatever it takes to get his **** together until it becomes clear that trading him is the only thing that will wake him up.
I'm not saying I'm ready to trade him for a mid round pick but if you hold onto him for 2-3 more years you're essentially taking that offer off the table. At that point if he's still toiling in the AHL he will be considered a bust of a prospect and worth virtually nothing. I think keeping him is the way to go because the upside is higher than with the potential draft pick you get for him but keeping him is a gamble that could net you absolutely nothing. It's all or nothing.
