I feel pretty bad for him, hard to turn it around in Edmonton too... the media and the fanbase have been dumping on him big time and he's always seemed like a guy who is a little mentally fragile to me.

I think a new start is what he needs but he won't play at the level he was at before.

because a 3rd or 4th round pick is almost worthless. Gregor is right, we don't need to be trading roster players for late picks anymore.
Whitney is not a roster player right now. He is a project. We hope he returns to form. Send him to the minors we can't miss the playoffs cause one of our D-men can't find his game. A forward you can let slide... Its unfortunate but true defense cant afford to be bad like he has been.
