Niemi Extended 4 Years by SharksDeal works out to just under 4 million per year...
finally, the guy gets the credit he deserves. I am a huge Niemi fan, and all the guineas done in two short seasons in the NHL is pitch shutouts after shutout, win games, and win a Stanley Cup...this summer he didn't get the respect, and signed with San Jose at the end of the summer. nice then, he started off slowly (after playing a ton of hockey last year) but since Right around mid-December he has been the NHL's best goalie, statistically and from a record standpoint.
I am putting together the numbers since then, but they are staggering..
More to come..
I know the source is bad, but i'll look for another one
