That will give the Pens more of a legitimate scoring threat on the 4th line, and be more of a threat to have those kinds of players be double-shifted with Crosby/Malkin/Staal.

edit: Also, stop putting forwards on the point on the PP -- especially when we have the lead -- unless it's the last few minutes and we are behind. Last year, we did "OK" with Michalek or others on the PP unit. Even if Niskanen is out and Paul Martin isn't Gonchar, it's still not worth the risk when we're up in the game or tied.
Agreed 100%.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Niskanen on the top PP as well. Unlike Letang, he doesn't double clutch the puck and his shot is always on the net.
