I'd take Niemi at $1M or less. I mean, he's better than Auld. He can push Price. And if Price isn't ready for the challenge, Niemi would give us a better option than Auld. And in the meantime it pressures the Price camp to sign a contract. If Niemi was signed for $1M, and if that knocked $500k or so off Price's salary, it's a pretty minimal investment, which makes the team better.

Now granted, all totally far-fetched to begin with. But if Niemi is on his way back to Europe otherwise, then maybe he'll eventually reach that stage of desperation first.
