Or perhaps Montreal will sign Niemi?

Still a lot of "doesn't make sense" from my POV -- for the Sharks.
Eklund is saying that Montreal is getting the starting goalie from the other team, in addition to the defenseman. So they are getting a starter. The Sharks are not sending our or receiving a goalie under his scenario.

To actually quote Eklund:

"The trade would involve another #1 going back to Montreal, and a defenseman who would be flipped to San Jose for a quality forward with size."
