This, a thousand times over.
I like Moulson and Okposo just fine, but I wouldn't mind at all if either were usurped by Niederreiter - flanking JT with two 'softies' isn't the smartest way to ensure that "die WŁnderkind" doesn't spend too much time defending himself and risking penalties (read: slashing the hell out of Letang) or become the recipient of an all-expense paid trip to the hospital when opponents decide to play rough.
I don't want to shackle him to a goon, but an element of meanness on that line could have the ability to pester, distract and unbalance an opponent. Luckily Niederreiter looks like he has a chance to offer both a scoring touch and some much-needed sandpaper to one wing or another, hopefully next to JT.
