Anyways, if Niemi becomes a UFA, and Turco signs in Chicago, where would Niemi go? Nobody is going to offer him $2.75M. I wouldnt be surprised to see him turco himself. Maybe by the time our roster is finalized and we dont have 8 dmen, maybe Niemi will only be asking for $2M or less. I wouldnt be opposed to that, but I'm sure the genius running the show would.

Niemi isnt the greatest option, but Niemi/Leighton is 10x better than Leighton/Boosh.
i totally agree. I think after the Kovy-saga Niemi will be the next story of the summer.
