Those knights would maybe end up being the strongest pieces in the game, which is significant because there are two of them. For reference, in crazyhouse, knights are like barely worse than rooks. But I think these knights gain more from promotion than the bishop and rook do.

That's not necessarily a good or bad thing, just something of note!
