This is the problem with your idea of us trading Hartnell to make room for Niemi - we don't need to trade Hartnell as a salary dump, as per the Gagne deal. Hartnell is signed for a couple more years, and would have some trade value.
In that sense, we could probably get better prospects from the Kings or Coyotes than the Leafs can offer - since the best Leaf prospects like Schenn and Kadri are deservedly off limits, but your pool of prospects isn't as deep.
Finally an intelligent answer. Thanks a lot.
