We could have possibly stuck with the other "N" named goalie for 4 mil...

You know, rhymes with "Abokov".

Just like Mike Vernon, and that'd didn't help us much either. Back then the Sharks needed more offense, not a goalie. And now the Sharks need better D, not a goalie.

I love how people forget how awful Niemi was during the regular season. I really hope this isn't true

I agree D is a bigger issue. Problem is i don't think we could have improved our D with a FA signing (too much money or not enough talent) at this point.

So much fail in this thread. If it's 2 mil or under for him this is total win.

At this point they're not required to have the ultimate d.

The defense is as good as it was to start last season.

Not a FA signing, but trades. And to take on more salary, DW would need as much cap space as possible. If you are going to go cheap on goalies, not sure why your 2 goalies should be $2M/per guys...

Normally I'd just WANT to think this so I feel better about the current situation, but this time I actually do think so. Bottom line is we have 8 signed goalies... something's gotta give.

That's why I said possibly, and I know DW gave up on him. But do you feel better with the Niemiimaki Duo than Nabby and Greiss?

I don't.

Realistically Sateri will probably be in Europe for one more year.

I would like this signing a lot better if we hadn't already signed Niitty for 2 years.

Still waiting for official word anyway.

Well that's dumb on DW's part if that were true. If he was able to negotiate with Nabokov instead of just letting him go, maybe he could've signed for like 3 million, depending on how desperate he wanted to stay in San Jose.

Blake was terrible to start last season... do people here have amnesia? A Wallin is as good as Blake was the first three quarters of last season.
