He's better than what we have on the farm besides maybe eventually Klefbom.
The thing with keeping him as a mid pairing dman is where does the d corps improve then?

Smid - Petry
Whitney - Schultz
Schultz - Fistric/Potter/Peckham

We need to improve this group and to do that you have to move out players. Next year ideally we don't have Whitney, Peckham, or Potter and we replace them with BETTER players.
