I don't think a lot of you guys have any idea how good Niskanen is. He's had about as good a rookie season as anyone, this proposal isn't close to Niskanen's value. He is a much better prospect than Sauer. His value is probably not even that much less than Staal's.
And no, Prucha, Malik/Mara, and a 3rd don't balance out this trade.
so Ott is Dallas's best player Ott is another Avery something the Rangers need more of, we need more grit, size and toughness upfront and on d. Avery Ott and Callahan would be fun to watch
But why would Dallas want to trade a player who is playing well for them, for players that are playing like crap for us. That's the part of the trades which dont make sense. Also than Dallas would need to trade to get an Ott type of player.
