The Stars need defenders, not forwards. A player like that automatically loses value if they're not providing offense from the back-end. You do everything you can first to try to help him make it as a D. You've got a kid who's close to making the hardest leap of his career and all of a sudden you're going to throw a whole new set of responsibilities at him and change his very identity as a hockey player? Not to mention the adjustment he's already having to make to a new organization. Sounds like setting him up for failure. That kind of a move should be either a last resort or something you do with an established NHLer if you feel like that's how they can best help your team.
