I don't think we HAVE to unload him. He's a UFA after the 2013-14 season. Now the question is if it's the prudent move to be looking to do so next season or this season (IMO wouldn't be smart this season if we're making a push). As much as I like Brent and Nash, they're not the skillset we need to be a #3 guy, they're solid #4 types. If they feel that Rask is ready or that Dalpe can play center in the league then they make make a move. Otherwise, they'll frustratingly stand pat with Juice as the #3 center until he reaches UFA status, with us getting absolutely nothing in exchange for a guy we're most likely not going to re-sign if his production doesn't get back to pre-2012 levels.
