We need a balance and our team is in a win now mode. Trading Maatta instead of Niskanen would be ideal given our situation.
I agree we need to win now, but if we were to trade our D prospects, I'd much rather give up Pouliot, he may be better than Maatta now regarding points, but Maatta plays that all round game we'd love and his work ethic would put him at a level higher than Pouliot. Fine, if we have to trade one of our D-prospects for Malone give them Pouliot
