I wouldn't consider him a bubble or fringe player who needs a look. He's a hot prospect, who should be where he belongs, which sadly, in this case, isn't where he is. I'm not sure being here will harm him, except if he gets mad about Rochy next year(if he's eligible, he is only 18 now?). If he just had to play as a prospect next year as well, then I guess him being here now is ok, too.

And I'm not sure what you don't understand about "we give up too many goals as a team" and "Hecht doesn't get scored on all that much at ES." But, yeah, by all means, let's bring up a guy who's not good enough for the NHL.
Right, but landing in 9th place every year is probably the most painful and least effective ways to re-build. Playing Hecht helps to ensure the 9th place finish, after a long, boring, annoying as hell season.
