There is no added value to trade for a local guy, really.

And he's worth more to Calgary because he has great potential but serious flaws. No need to trade him because you wouldn't get enough value to have it make sense to move him. This is not really a bad thing, but he's a guy you hold on to to see if he develops and can handle the AHL.
