I will remain optimistic until either Pollak or sjsharks.com posts it.

Agree. But we still have to feel for Greiss. Time comes when he would finally get his chance and, he gets thumped. Of course, "IF" a deal is to come for Niemi and, of course if Nitty isn't the one whom gets thumped and moved instead (which is doubtful).

Personally, I am looking forward to seeing Greiss and Nitty battle it out. But none the less, at low dollars and short term, Niemi would be a solid addition.

Actually the verb you're looking for is "guessed", not "knew".

i don't think this messes with getting d at all, there was no free agents we were going to sign. We were going to trade for a d and this gives us more pieces to trade for a D in ever way possible. Even if we had cap space we wernt going give away **** and get gold. we would have to give away nice silver and some penny's to get gold!. You realize what he is signing for this puts us with no excuses in net for the year, and now we are ready to trade for d and we don't look as desperate, so we will have more time to find the right trade for a d man.

Agreed. Speaking of Pollak he is going to be pissed. He does such a killer job, yet the Sharks refuse to send him any tidbits, and sometimes what they do send him is completely inaccurate (assuming of course that we have signed Niemi).

I know it's not confirmed, and this is not a confirmation either, but my friend just hit me up saying he heard this on the radio too.

Why would the Sharks do this? Have they given up on Greiss?

Maybe he's wrong about Nolan too...

Not necessarily. 8 goalies with Niemi. Sateri is scheduled to be playing in Europe, so that's 7 playing spots to find. 5 in NHL/AHL/ECHL (today). And Heemskerk can be in the WHL as an overager. So that just leaves one guy to find a spot for; lots of ECHL teams would be happy/grateful for a Sharks organization goalie.

Sounds like a "done except for the drying ink" deal:

  1. brodiebrazilCSN
    Antti Niemi has decided to accept a one-year, $2 million deal with #sjsharks, according to a league source.
  2. XMHomeIce
    CraigCustance Got confirmation from a league source that Antti Niemi is headed to San Jose. Will accept 1-year, $2 million offer.

What do you do with Greiss, who just signed a contract?

why does the title say 1m/1yr? gah that would have been good.

Sounds like this is still a good chunk of money that could have gone to our D...

and I do like niemi more for the playoffs, nitty has no playoff track record. Even if he had a good D in front of him(nitty has had good D's with philly too).

That was a good one.


But if all true, then what happens to Greiss? Is he going to be a part of a package? This guy really deserved his shot with us. Too bad.

im fine with 1 million, but really we have 3 backup goalies now i hope one of them can pull it through. This is like Philly without the good defence which is bad

We would have to trade for a d and that makes space in itself, there was no free agents we were going to sign so is does not really matter.

Wow. Eklund got it spot-on. He was saying for the past two days to watch the Sharks. And that Niemi was close to his decision...in fact, we'd been hearing rumors for a LONG TIME about Niemi and the sharks. I always thought it was possible considering we had the cap space and weren't likely going to get a Dman without a trade anyways. If anything, we have more chips to trade now, and we can still pick up a solid Dman at the deadline as long as we trade away Mitchell and/or Huskins/Murray (or even one of our goalies)

I was actually looking forward to seeing Niitty play full-time. Hopefully they play out of their heads competing for more starts...
