So, basically, it's Despres or Niskanen. Niskanen probably gives you a little more now.
But, the way Despres is developing, IMO he'll be the better choice come April when the playoffs start.
We have no way of knowing that. I've seen far more young D-men slide backwards their first year than the other way around.
I mentioned it in the other thread, but I'll mention it here again, because while I think we should temper some expectations, I think both Bort and Despres should keep playing.
I think Engelland should sit. I don't think he's been as good as many think he has.
