And I hope like hell he plays, plays well, and forces his way onto the team.
That was a tongue-in-cheek comment that I obviously didn't make clear enough was tongue-in-cheek. My bad. As for Milley I agree with you but I just think he's fallen behind guys like Bartovic, Paille, Thorburn and Gaustad who all have similar upsides.

Based on Milley's value, yeah I think that's the determining factor. You yourself said he doesn't even have Daniel Corso's trade value and I'm not sure he could bring much back. I think the Amerks would do fine without him. They just need Pominville and Ryan back, but that's a different issue.

Fair enough.
