I could understand that talk last year when Niskanen was on the bottom pairing all year... except that he was one of our best D all year and in the playoffs. Then this year he's been on the top pairing with Letang and looked fine. Yes I wish him or Letang had more size and were more physical. However he's played very very well for us since he came here, and nothing suggests that he doesn't belong in the top 4. Basically the issues we're having are not because he was getting over 21 minutes a night.
