Is Greiss ready to be a starter?
Would you trade Niemi if a good #4 defenceman was coming back?
He was fine during the first half, kind of brokedown during the second half, although the defense fell apart as well. He was good during the playoffs, definitely not the problem.
The reason he is thrown around in trade proposals is because it's believed that he is overpaid, and a Greiss/Stalock combo would be put up similar numbers for less money.
We would certainly trade Niemi for a #4 left handed puck mover, so long as he's not making much more than Niemi.
