The only concern are his intentions after this season as a UFA.

There is a real risk that we lose him for nothing if he doesn't see constistant time within this line up.

If he does see minutes and produces is where the real questions begin;

- Do you keep him and try to give him Top 4 minutes with the likes of Dion, Gardiner, Reilly already being locks for these spots in the future? What happens to Gunnarsson and JM Liles? What about Komisarek, Fraser and Holzer?

or

- Do you move him for a max return, gather more assets for the future and continue to platoon Carl Gunnarsson and JM Liles who are more than adequate to fill that spot? The bottom pairing role can be filled with the likes of Komisarek, Holzer, Fraser and the futures of Blacker, Finn and Percy.

It's all about keeping the assets coming full circle to keep this team competitive for years to come.
anything happening on the kessel front, it seems its losing traction
