Same team, big difference in numbers. I'll take Niemi for $2M any day of the week.
Huet gives up too many soft goals, but when it comes to Niemi he can stop the first shot very well, but his rebound control, inability to stop the second and third chances, and reliance on athleticism alone will only work with excellent defensive teams.

With that said Niemi would've been a decent fit here, but he is indeed overrated.
