I don't see a two-way being mentioned.

This all but says there's somebody on the way out, or does his lack of NHL games become a factor?

Or they could just send him to the AHL at full price, if they can't fit the $600k in.

Approx. 1.1 million over the cap. Nisky seems the logical choice to be moved?

Two-way vs One-way doesn't matter because he's waiver eligible now, and there's no way he clears..

Puts the Pens roughly 1M over the cap. Add the 1M Shero likes to have in reserve, and he needs to clear about 2M. Niskanen is good value at 2.3M, but having him as a 5th dman would seem to be a luxury thy can't afford. Maybe you move him for a pick/prospect, or you combo him with a depth forward (Glass?) to improve the bottom 6.

A month ago, I thought Ottawa could use a defenseman and tht since Greening was UFA next year, that might be a fit. Then they brought Corvo in, so I don't think they're a fit anymore. Still the lind of deal I'd like to see though.
