happens all the time... we have a solid top-4 and 2 ACs that specialize in D, so why not with Greiss

it's a risk, yes, Greiss could fall flat on his face... but Niemi did terrible this past year, too, and we survived... listen, I like Nemo and think he will bounce back, but everyone says we have depth at goaltender, so if DW really believes that, then I think it's a risk DW has to think about taking

not saying DW should shop Niemi, I just don't think DW should consider him untouchable
