Only problem for nik is that taking away Noble likely makes Derain Hatcher is #1 defenseman, which is not god enough, IMO. Ron Stackhouse is good enough to be a starting defenseman in a 40 team draft, though, so he won't have any trouble with depth.
nik definitely has to sleep in the bed he has made with Noble. The nice thing is, though, if the situation warrants it (injuries, etc.), Noble can very seamlessly switch to forward. He really should be listed as a F/D, I read a quote in UH that stated that a guy said that Reg Noble could play any forward position. Here's my LC ATD3 bio of him:

And here's the quote I'm talking about:

Reg Noble was described by one Toronto Daily Star sportswriter as "an expert hound on the ice." He played any and every position with ease.
