I don't think the Michalek trade was dumb at all, Niskanen looks like a solid top 4 defenseman, Orpik, Martin and Letang are fine. We have Simon Despres in the NHL starting with 3rd pair minutes, now gets paired with Letang.

Nothing to the Michalek trade, we don't need another top 4 defenseman.
agreed and the bottom line was the Cap space which was going to be used on Parise and Suter.
