Sounds like he'd be willing to take another discount in that case. Obviously these scoring numbers are going to come back to earth at some point, and that's a concern. But he's versatile enough and his role in the locker room is big enough that I wouldn't object to gambling a bit on a longer contract.
Hopefully there is a balance to be struck between term and compensation that satisfies both parties. If I had to lay money, I'd say he's on the team next year. But that might mean that Cooke is gone.
Considering what they have on the roster now on defense, and what they have coming in the pipeline, I'd try to move Niskanen and his $2.3 million contract this summer.
