I don't think they'll trade anyone until they're absolutely sure Gally is ready to step in as centre full-time.
Yeah my post was incomplete, I meant in about 2 years. I give him no more than 1 year on the wing because he'll eventually need to learn how to play center and he'll probably need a couple of years. Playing center in the NHL is hard and he will need a lot of experience to be effective.
