Doubtful they'd give him up and giving up non core assets (Sedins, Kes, Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Kass) wouldnt impact this team great.
I have no doubt in my mind that he could bring more to that bottom 6 than anyone not named Hansen.
He's just not a bottom six player at this time, if you want him to reach the level you think his upside is, you send him to Chicago and let him play top line minutes.
The demotion to Springfield isn't bad for him, it was what they did last year. He's only 20 years old, no need to rush him.
I'd love to have a prospect like him, but I don't think he improves the canucks current roster (unless you're moving him to RW in the top 6....I'd prefer to see him develop at C).
