No, I'd likely move Greiss as part of whatever deal brought Mason back (Nash assumedly). See how it goes to close out this season, then move Niemi if Mason works out and have Stalock backup (who i have high confidence in). If Mason doesn't work out as our starter we end up with an issue though, no doubt about it. Not a big deal if we get Carter, a big problem if it's Nash (cap wise).
If it does work out though, we could have a Price/Quick type situation and be spending very little in goal ($3.5m total or so). Game breaking goalies are too expensive to be practical, but if you can get lucky and have one on a cheap deal that is an extremely good situation. I'm just saying this might be a gamble worth taking.
