Koistinen plays a tad bit different style compared to Klein and Brookbank. We saw Brookbank brought up for a phsyical presence to make up for Weber going down. Hence if Zidlicky or Kimmo were down for a bit of time, I think we would see Koistinen brought up. He lost the roster spot battle to Lehtonen early on, however I'm not sure how much difference there was between the two before Lehtonen got traded and the point became mute.

Is bringing Niskala over like Lehtonen? A tryout to see how he does and if not he can go to MIL or back to Europe...
No one is sure Niskala has even signed yet, but I'm sure we'll see if the deal is announced. Once would assume he'd have an option to jet to Europe if he couldn't make the team, although he is younger than Lehtonen was when he was brought over.
