Don't be too quick to reach your decision. The kid was our 3rd leading scorer just last year.
I'm a fan of him, but I see a few issues that make him tradable.

- He's physically soft and has no grit

- He has no apparent slot on the team where he can excel (sucks as a wing, and there are no open center spots for him)

- Horrible at faceoffs which even further limits his effectiveness


Basically he's redundant. I think he could without a doubt blossom into a very good forward some day. BUT, to reshape a team you have to trade someone. Who can we get a good return from AND not create a gaping hole in the lineup? Mojo fits the bill today.
