Why trade him if he's exactly what we would need at the deadline?

During both of the cup runs, the puck moving dmen were a big part of our success. Gonchar, Letang, Whitney, and Gogo were all vital to the transition game, PP, and even goal scoring. Neither Letang nore Niskanen can make up for Gonchar's loss in the offensive zone, but combined they can come close.

I say keep Niskanen and trade for a defensive Dman to be a #6 for the playoffs. Perhaps even re-sign Niskanen until Morrow and Despres can take over.
