For that reason I'd trade him soon for either a early first round pick in 2013 plus, or in a package deal for a young highly touted forward. Like Matt Duchene for example.

Take it easy on me boys. I'm only saying how I feel. Believe me when I say, I hope I'm wrong about him. But I just don't think I am.
Yet, the organization that drafted him probably feels differently about him than do you apparently. Here is what the GM had to say about him in the summer; the comments about Scheifele begin at roughly the 50 second mark...

He has since said other quite glowing words about him in print as well. I'm guessing that they plan to let his future eventually play itself out here and guess you won't be getting your wish anytime soon.
