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.
Niemi did not really have a down year... He did have one bad month after an injury, but even with that overall he played as expected.
