So acquiring a top 4 D with great history with the Pens while substantially increasing the Pens' chance of winning the Cup is ''giving Niskanen away''.
And no, the Sens don't want Niskanen for Gonchar, that's not enough.
Niskanen is the most overrated 3rd pair D-man ever. Doesn't play the PK, is horrible on the PP and is only there because there are no other options.
