This is the best argument for keeping Greiss and I agree, Niitty's hips / groin are an issue and I'd really hope they don't run Niemi into the ground during the 2nd half of the season again.

With that said, I have no doubt that if Wilson and McLellan believe Niitty gives them the best chance at winning this year, they'll either keep 3 goalies or move Greiss.
