How quickly people forget, or maybe they didn't watch Chicago that much.
Chigaco had quite a bit of trouble against Nashville and they needed Niemi to be very good and he delivered. Against San Jose Niemi was excellent. He won 16 play-off games in a single season. He was no passenger on that Chicago team. If Chicago had the cap space they would have agreed to his arbitration award. Niemi and Byfuglien are the two important pieces that Chicago lost this summer, not irreplaceable pieces, but important pieces still.
Niemi in Montreal? No, don't need him. Price is better and probably cheaper. However, for the Habs Niemi being available is a good thing. Price no longer is the only long-term #1 option out there for available for us, that should help us a bit in Price's contract talks.
