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
Niemi was really good in the playoffs. We did not fail there because of him.

I am not opposed to moving him but I would prefer not to enter the playoffs with Greiss/Stalock. I think we will be fine for the regular season but we need an experienced goalie for the playoffs.
