I do think he simply had an off year. Zidlicky is incredible with the puck and the skill level is there. Somehow things didn't fall into place this year for Zidlicky.

I am probably being a bit too pessimistic with his trade value. I think its likely he gets traded after Free Agency after a team fails to get Timonen, Souray, etc. Perhaps that would make his value go up a tad bit. Or better yet a team wants to already have their guy before Free Agency and overpay.

Back to Niskala, if he does in fact sign with us, will he be able to step right in and run our PP? How comparable is he to Timonen?
