LW Ville Nieminen UFA

I really hope Sather is going to target him. He is a LW, has grit and has some skill. Reminds me a bit of Esa Tikkanen. Does anyone think hed be a good fit for our team? Immonen and Nieminen, 2 fins on the same line can make Immonen's transition a bit better to the NHL.

I would imagine in 2 years Korpikoski would be Immonen's linemate.

Not really. Do we really have to pair guys up because of their nationality? I think that may be destructive to what we're trying to build.

I think Nieminen would fit with Immonen regardless because he's got spunk, some skill, and would provide some grit.

Is it me or are we really lacking beef up on the front lines? Jagr, Nylander, and Straka is pretty Kleenex soft.

Nieminen is not huge but very hard nosed. He's also in his 20's and a good 3rd liner. Someone's going to grab him might as well be us.

Obviously money is an issue, but Ville takes a TON of bad penalties. Giroux or Murray may be just as good an option for less $. Would you guys take Ville for a mill over Giroux,Wiseman, or Murray for half of that? I dont knoe, tough one..
