Should have been done two years ago.

Has been obvious from his first year pro that he was simply a trainwreck defensively and never ever going to be able to play defense at the NHL level.

Now he's 23 and nothing but a bad AHL defender.

Has the toolbox to think he might be able to carve out a niche up front - shot, decent size, some grit, OK skater going forward - but who knows. Would have been nice if the last 2 years had been spent on the conversion, and would have been a lot more likely to be successful.

As it is he's a total bust. Shouldn't be re-signed unless it's to play forward.
