Should we trade him? Simple answer - if the return fills a greater need, either now or with excellent future considerations, then yes, we trade him.
Yes it is relevant. For someone who is a social wreck, finding a place thats comfortable im sure is very important. Why move and risk being exposed to a similar situation when you can guarantee fimiliarity, meaning he would likely want to re-sign. Also, trade Kessel and you create a huge hole. JVR, Lupul, MacArthur, and Kulemin as the top 6 wingers? None of which are even guaranteed to hit 50 points in a given season. You dont deal a top 10 scorers for futures or anything short of a massive overpayment if he has a good chance of re-signing.
