How many starts for Niemi?
 
I'm thinking about taking Niemi late in my hockey fantasy league. How many games do you estimate that he'll start out of 48 games?

Kegsey 01-16-2013 11:19 AM

45.5

So you don't expect Greiss to start taking away more games from Niemi this season?

Never watched any of his games, but Greiss had solid numbers last season and he's a bit younger.

1 too may

Okay thanks, just trying to understand why Yahoo has ranked Niemi so poorly.

niemi and greiss had basically the exact same stats last year.

niemi 2.42 goals against. .915 save%

greiss 2.30 goals against (translated to 68 games, means greiss would of allowed 3 less goals), .915 save%.

The Koala is not impressed:

Basically Coach Koala likes to ride his number 1 as much as humanly possibly, so even though Greiss is a decent to good goalie he'll be lucky to see very many starts at all.

I suspect Stalock and Sateri will be given more shots this year and those starts will likely come at Greiss's expense. Barring a Niemi injury of course.

Which is stupid, because Greiss has better fundamentals and better athleticism. He deserves more opportunity. Realistically though I think Stalock or Sateri will better than either of them.

DuckEatinShark 01-16-2013 12:36 PM

Honestly, I think Nemo starts around 40 games. Don't ask me why though.

I really think Greiss should go elsewhere. He really should get a shot like Lindback. He's not getting any playing time here as long as Niemi plays OK.

magic school bus 01-16-2013 12:59 PM

Niemi is probably ranked low because the media expects the Sharks to be much worse this season, resulting in less wins for Niemi. His save percentage is pretty average as well. So without the wins, it makes sense that he'd be ranked lower.

Griess is no threat for starts to answer your question.

Fistfullofbeer 01-16-2013 01:16 PM

32. Atleast.

Nighthock 01-16-2013 01:18 PM

if you do the math, Niemi has started an average of 78% of the games in the past two seasons (82% last year)

78% of 48 is 38 games (rounded up)
82% of 48 is 40 games (rounded up)

so 39 is my answer ... 39







I need a life ...

The question then becomes, what's the statistical likelihood that you will get one?

I would probably just look at how many back to backs we have; that is the only time that Greiss could get a start, so that would give you the minimum number of games Niemi will play.

Hatrick Marleau 01-16-2013 01:37 PM

35-40 games is my guess.

sjshark91 01-16-2013 02:05 PM

With Todd, all of them.

Gene Parmesan 01-16-2013 02:14 PM

36 starts.

SactoShark 01-16-2013 02:33 PM

"When this guy plays a lot, he plays better. We could play him 82 games and he'd probably be fine."

Yahoo ranked Datsyuk outside the top 100 back when I did a draft in october.

They don't know much about hockey.

Mafoofoo 01-16-2013 03:30 PM

All of them, including practice scrums where he'll play both sides of the rink.

He's also going to chart face off's and open the bench door.
