I think he gets the most value in return for sure, but I'd be reluctant to move him before the summer. I really like having a back-up who can play 25-35 games without the team missing a beat and having him as an option in the playoffs.
Hopefully by next season Lack will be ready to take over Schneids' role behind Luo. Only way I'd move Corey this year is if we can get a real stud in return.
I'm not advocating we move Cody for a rental, but instead for a player who will stay here for a while. He definitely has some potential and may work out on the wing, but if we can get someone who is a better winger and can fit with Kes, I'd look to make that move.

I have no problem moving lower round picks and even 3rd rounders for players who can play and will stay for more than a couple of months. It can be a gamble if a player isn't anything more than a rental, but moving those types of picks won't cripple you if you only miss on a couple of occasions. The moves Nonis and Burke made with their 2nd and 3rd rounders really depleted the prospect cupboard for a few years because the rentals didn't stay for the most part and there was a dearth of players to step in those roles internally over the next few seasons.

Yup, but now he's been fined and will be treated like a repeat offender from here on in. Next time a similar hit happens he'll be suspended.
