When Lucas changed his last name to Horton, I hoped that we'd see Lucas become a more prominent character who carried on the Horton legacy. However, that never happened. Heck, Melanie spends more time with the Horton family than Lucas does!

And since Rafe has pretty much taken on the paternal role with Sami and Lucas's children, this gives Lucas even less of a purpose. It also doesn't help that Chloe has turned Lucas into a cuckold for the umpteenth time, and Lucas is being portrayed as an idiot who thinks that Mommy Dearest wouldn't even hurt a fly. Also, Philip is the younger brother, yet Philip is always portrayed as smarter and more mature (and more desirable) than Lucas. Sadly, if Lucas disappeared off canvas, it really wouldn't make an impact on the DAYS characters, since Lucas has been extremely marginalized.

I think BD is still on DAYS because the producers and Ali Sweeney like BD and not because DAYS actually sees Lucas as an important, valuable character.

Sidenote: I wonder if BD has ever considered leaving DAYS for another show? During the time that Lucas was in prison, I recall reading that BD had auditioned for a role on OLTL.
