no....based on what other young goalies that are starters or expected starters and have similar #'s to niemi....so basically same or very similar situation ...have recently signed for i think he will cost 2mil per tops...and i think something around 1.5-1.75 is very reasonable and likely...heres why

rask-1.25 x 2yrs
quick-1.8 x 3yrs
gustavson 1.35 x 2yrs
anderson 1.75 x 2 or 3 yrs im not sure on his length

i think those are 4 very good comparables for niemi's deal....niemi and them are all around same age....all are signing 2nd deal except anderson....and all had similar #'s to niemi....so i see niemi falling somewhere in that range
