IMO, keep Palazzese.
Unfortunately, Spott hasn't had much luck dealing veteran goalies during the season. He held onto Unice way too long and once his value went through the floor, got next to nothing for him. He got way below market value for Mavic Parks who was then dealt the following off season by Barrie to Saginaw for assets including one Mark Scheiffle.
Trying to deal a veteran goalie during the season is probably the hardest asset to get fair market value for. Most contending teams are set in goal and the rebuilding teams don't need him.
The best time to deal one is the off season (unless you are dealing a Steve Mason and you can demand the farm for him). Spott couldn't deal Frankie in the past off season until Gibson was 100% returned to Kitchener, and by then, most teams were set in net. Therefore, unless some contender loses their #1 guy to season ending injury, we won't get market value for him because anyone dealing for him will likely only want him as insurance - as Barrie did with Parks.
So I also say don't deal him. He's more valuable to us right here. If Spott decides to really go for it and deal the young assets he'd need to, to acquire a couple high end guys the way the Knights did last year (Watson/McKegg), and goes into next year as a rebuilding year, then I'd explore dealing Frankie next off season when his value would go back up again, as Parks' value did. Moylan would then be the #1 guy. Remember, it would be a rebuilding year and Moylan would be 18.
