For reference the Sharks are paying 4th place Niemi $3.8M. Niemi who incidentally the Hawks walked away from in 2010.
I want to retract this statement. The contract is bad, but I'm not sure it is worse than either of the contracts for the deadly duo of Clarkson/Bozak.
I does carry the greater risk though. You can hide an underperforming forward in the lineup, you can't hide an underperforming goalie.
