I'm not quite sure why you think we would've netted a better return for Niskanen at the start of UFA - when there were more options available to teams - than later on in the summer.

Most of the FA dominos similar to Niskanen have fallen, so those teams who weren't able to address that need in FA will be looking to address it via trade.
