    Antti Niemi to Sharks?

    We have a goaltender but this might be the gold in the dirt to pickup. Nabokov was a good goalie but failed us in the playoffs...to Move on do we pick Antti Niemi who is fresh from a Stanley Cup to become our goaltender?

    Niemi was awarded 2.75 million in arbitration and Chicago walked away. I would love Niemi at 2.75 million, but unfortunately what I have read that number may end up being the starting point in negotiations. San Jose is only looking at 4 million and some change left to fill the roster out (and desperately need to pick up a top 4 defensemen). The price may become too rich. The Nittymaki deal looks even worse now to me

    Pick up Niemi, dump Nittymaki in the minors, make a trade for kaberla.

    Sharks get a number 1 goalie, get rid of a bad contract into the minors ( if the owner is willing to accept it) and pick up a top 4 dman who happens to be a great puckmoving defencemen. I would of said acquire bieksa but van wont trade him now with salo's injury.

    I would love to see him play for us but I agree with the fellas before me. He'll cost too much and we still have needs to address.

    yeah, I don't see it happening...we'll be seeing a lot of Nittymaki & Griess in goal next season. We still need to find a top D Man

    According to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet Canada, the Sharks are about to drop $2M on Antti Niemi, thus ending the glorious Niittymaki Era

    2 million sounds very nice to me. Really hope Wilson has a move up his sleeve for a top 4 defenseman
