Yep, we seem to be in agreement.

What did Turris return again... Rundblad and a second? I'd say a roster player, McNabb or Pysyk and a second is our comparable then, but Snow doesn't have to move Niederreiter at all. I doubt that Brennan and/or Adam would be enticing enough prospects to move him.

As for the situation, I think it's more likely posturing by Niederreiter's agency to get him a call-up. I'm sure he wasn't pleased seeing AHLers like McDonald and Aucoin get NHL looks/minutes, meanwhile he doesn't even earn a camp invite with his 19+17 in Bridgeport.
