I don't see the need to keep him up. There are other options. I do think his long term offensive game would be hurt by staying.
Ya, that's the one thing I am worried about with keeping him up. I don't want his offensive game stunted.

I think at this point, his absolute worst case scenario is to become a solid third liner. He's pretty much already at that level. I'm hoping he will become a legitimate top 6 power forward along the lines of Lucic. We'll see.
I want to see where Tedenby is at the deadline. If he's still struggling, I say trade him. If only for the players sake. I would hate to see a clearly talented offensive player not get at least one more shot at the NHL.
