Niskanen >-< MARK Stuart/Blake Wheeler
 
http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/...gether/?page=2

Found this article from Eliteprospects.com...

Haven't seen Mark Stuart play since the ´08 World Championships but those stats seem to be quite strong.. I've hoped tha Matt would recover from that sophomore slump but it seems that his place isn't in Dallas.

I think Wheeler needs a top 6 place in the line-up and he doesn't have the stats to make it in Dallas and also he's a bit more expensive so Stuart for Niskanen deal would seem to be a one to look at..

Is there any more 23-26 attacking defencemen with high draft picks floating around 1,7 milj.$??

No way we trade a defenseman for a forward (in terms of Wheeler). We're thin on the D line as it is.

Honestly, unless Mark Stuart (UFA as of July 1st) is a better offensive D-man that Niskanen, what's the point? We have a Mark Stuart in Mark Fistric.

I would rather see Paille and Stuart for Daley.

Oh man, I would trade Niskanen for Wheeler so ****ing fast... are you kidding me?

There's absolutely room in the top 6. You take Wheeler's right shot and put it next to Ribs, move Benn to the 3rd line wing centered by Wandell with Ott on the other wing and now you've got 3 real lines instead of 2. Call up Larsen to replace Niskanen and you've improved both the defense and the offense in one fell swoop. You don't even take on much salary when you consider that Larsen makes half of what Niskanen does. Even less if you can unload one of the 4th liners.

Oh, and the unintentional comedy of Jack Edwards having to now apologize for "little Matty Niskanen" would be worth it alone.

OMG I'd be ecstatic if we were able nab Wheeler for Niskasuck.

I don't know where to write this but Mario Tremblay said during the Habs game today on RDS that 5 teams want Marc-André Bergeron: Tampa Bay Lightning, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars and two others (he doesn't know).

I would trade Niskasuck :laugh: for a bag of used pucks.

DaStars99 12-04-2010 03:40 PM

I'd do either in a heartbeat. Wheeler is a quality talent that while we don't really have space currently the return is too great to pass up. I don't believe in Nisky's ability to regain his former form sans Zubov. I think Stuart can be serviceable and, heck getting anything for Nisky I would consider a gain.
