The best argument for keeping him is if he would be gracious in accepting a lesser role like 3c and PP specialist.

The only reason I am on the fence about trading JT now is that the org needs an overhaul in scouting and development until they commit to or accomplish that, wasting a pick is just stupid. Set the direction then fire away with trades. The same reason applies to trading either Marleau or Boyle.
Maybe the scouts aren't getting the job done?
