By leaving Shalit a prisoner, Netanyahu has an endless excuse to display how 'cruel' Hamas is. If Shalit was freed he might have to bow to international pressure to seriously consider Hamas as part of a peace plan. He does not want that, he wants the settlements, E Jerusalem, the further denigration of Palestinians. He is just playing games with Shalit and the thousands of Palestinian prisoners who also continue to suffer endlessly.
