Paying Niemi at that price would have required the Hawks to shed even more salary and get rid of players they valued more. So they wasted no time turning to Turco, a cheaper, older option with an impressive resume.

Guy seem not to have any idea what's salary cap.
Yeah

If he signs a 1 year deal with whoever, I can see him returning to us next year with the bonuses gone, depending on how Turco does, how much he wants, how did Crawford do, and how much Niemi will want that time around.
