Our defense was a top ten defense even with a really poor PK. It's not just defense that is an issue with that aspect. It's the coaching AND it's the goaltending as well. I didn't mind making the switch in net due to salary but I know that Niemi is just as prone to giving up a softy as Nabby was. Niemi is no better as an individual goalie and, in reality, he'd be damn near unanimously worse if he didn't ride the back of a very talented Chicago squad to a Stanley Cup. That Cup is the only reason why anyone gives him the least bit of slack at this point.
