Still open to dealing Malone away if the right deal comes along.
ORLY?

Niskanen was so good on the bottom pairing last year that we were able to deal Michalek and put him in the top 4 with Letang. He's looked even better this year in that role.

Lightning fans should go to sleep every night praying for a defenseman as steady as Niskanen to insert into the line-up. I wouldn't deal him for Malone straight-up.
