I think Niskanen's fate all depends on what the Pens decide to do with Martin and Orpik. If they move one of those 2 guys, we could use Niskanen in our line-up as a more "veteran" guy, because we can't just fill out our roster with kids. And while moving out Nisky's $2.3 million, I don't think that's enough (even if we traded TK too) to pay for an Iginla/Perry, especially with the Cap going down $6million.

So I think we could move Nisky if he brings us back a young player who fills our role of a legit 1st line winger for Crosby, but if we can't do that and want to swing for the fences with an expensive UFA or trade target, I think we'll see one of Orpik/Martin being moved out.
