I just don't see him moving.
I agree with your pov but you also have to take into consideration that we are dealing with young teenagers that will make mistakes from time to time. We were able to move Cormier after he got the most negative exposure I've seen in a long long while due to a vicious hit but the Thrashers were high on his potential and were betting that he'd turn out as we expected when we drafted him.

I don't see him moving either but I wouldn't be against it if Lou were to ship him out of town.
