I think Nisky should have been traded at the draft, but at that time things were still up in the air with Letang and Shero had no idea who he was going to sign in free agency, etc. I still believe there is trade value there for Nisky. I don't necessarily think that value went down in a few weeks especially since teams have more options during free agency than now.
