Niederreiter most of his NHL career has averaged around 15 minutes a game, only twice getting over 40 points in a season.
Was putting up about a .5PPG pace with the Wild, but since joining the Canes he now has 12 points in 12 games with the Canes, averaging over 18 minutes a game.
Wild got Victor Rask, playing 12 minutes a game and has 2pts in 10 games.
Danny... Hamilton is like more of the things you hate about Gardiner with some added physicality. He’s not a top pair guy, he’s not an upgrade over Gardiner, and giving up assets for him would be counter productive. He’s like the 4th best D on a team that can’t make the playoffs
There's a lot of in-between with 2nd and a 1st though. I mean rental polak got 2 x 2nds and Gudas is better than Polak was and signed for longer.
#4 RHD are coveted and there'd be enough competition for his services.
