Niskanen can be a top 4 defender. He was some years ago in Dallas when he was only in his early 20s. Now that he has matured some, and got his confidence back, he could replace the Pens version of Martin at half the cost. Setoguchi should thrive in our uptempo offense playing with Sid. Plus we'd get back a big, tough stay at home D in Stoner (signed for 2 years at 1.05 million).



Only problem I see is Stoner being somewhat redundant on the 3rd pairing with Engelland playing a similar style and Bortuzzo waiting for his chance. Then again, more size on D can't hurt.

Edit: Not that I believe this rumour to be true anyway...
