Niemi was tied for 5th in the league this year for shutouts with 6 and a number of San Jose fans want to trade him for someone better. Getting a lot of shutouts doesn't necessarily translate into good goalie.
You forgetting his 5 shutouts come over 3 years. playing less then once every 3 weeks. Elliots stats are in one year playing every 2nd game ruffly Your compareing apples and oranges. Is it not reasonable to think a goalie is better with the more games they play? I agree its not a garente to be a great goalie. Its a sign hes ready for more work. Look at his ahl record i know not a great comparsion but its a tell hes capable of handling more games. All he needs is a chance which he wont with quick ahead of him
