Just as we have a rotation of stopgap solutions in the top 6, the Blues are doing the same on Pietrangelo's pairing.

And Niskanen can absolutely bring back a top 6 forward if he keeps playing like he has. Especially when he is showing he can play top pairing minutes with a #1. Can play the left side. Play the point on your 2nd PP unit. That sounds alot like what the blues want. Add in he's on a good contract and won't break the bank for them when he resigns.
They can get that player at the deadline for prospects and picks and make a run at the Cup with a solid offensive lineup
