Either or? He really didn't play much at ES in either of the past two games.The rationale for that is known only by the coaching staff. It might be they didn't want to put him in positions where he'd likely fail at this point in his development. They've seen how bad the effects of that can be with Niskanen. But perhaps he also showed tendencies in practice that make them think he'd be an ES liability in a game. *shrugs*
I can't say I've watched him enough to develop a particular opinion, but his ice-time distribution in Dallas was heavily tilted to the power play, and there's usually a reason for that.
