Personally, I keep Niskanen. He's still getting better, he can play both sides effectively and has played well with everyone he's paired with. He also has that urgency and grit to his game. I'd trust him more in the playoffs.
Don't see why we can't slot Niskanen with Orpik. Despres with Letang.
All of that's very plausible. I don't think either will be traded this season and I think Martin is more likely to be dealt in the off-season than Niskanen. I just can't see breaking up a shutdown pair that's playing well during the season so I think Martin is here until the summer.
