I've seen quite a few Sharks posters say they weren't really happy with him, and were throwing him around in trade proposals quite often.

Is Greiss ready to be a starter?

Would you trade Niemi if a good #4 defenceman was coming back?

Just wondering.
Niemi had a down year, but so did a lot of the Sharks so it's not all his fault. We barely got to use Havlat and Burns spent half the season adjusting to a new team. Boyle was playing on a broken foot for the first month which really put us in a hole. Sharks fans were offering a lot of guys away, but I wouldn't put too much stock into that. It was a frustrating year.

Griess? I don't see him being a starter. Could be a good backup for a team like Biron is in NY (to play 25 or so times a year to give "the guy" some rest)

Still, I would trade Niemi if the right top-4 defenseman was offered. It would have to be a puck mover, who can skate. Preferably a left hander.
