Because they sure as hell aren't getting a decent return if they keep him until the trade deadline. He's been bumped down the roster by Eberle/Yakupov, and won't get all the cushy powerplay minutes to bump up his numbers to make him more attractive to playoff bound teams either. He doesn't even fit the type of player teams want at trade deadline(big and/or playoff warrior types, or defensemen).
OK. I am done discussing this as I said, I'd rather focus on prospect talk.
