We're far better off keeping him for the season, hoping he plays well enough to increase his trade value, and moving him at the draft.
Agreed, next season K-Conn should be with the big club and Tanev's defensive responsibility and K-Conn's offensive abiliies makes them perfect partners, like a poor mans Hamhuis-Bieska.
