There's not room for him now but I expect he's the guy who replaces Ryder at the deadline. There will always bee room for a guy with his talent.
Ryder and Benn both beg to differ. Two of those 3 will likely be gone next year, though.

I want him or Smith in the top 6 full time by the end of the year unless the top 6 gets rolling and we're in a playoff spot. Even then, if they're ready, you give it to them.
