I believe.... yes, Sharks pay him and we still lose a contract slot to him but he doesn't take up any cap space.

Lol, he will just be opening the door there too. With Ellis injured, Deslauriers/Tarkki are both alternating that who gets to open the door for the Ducks. I doubt Niitty sees playing time over one of those two.

Syracuse (or more like Ducks?) probably pays a few k of his salary, we will pay the rest.

I have to think there is a deal for him to get playing time there. The goal still has to be to get a trade done, so they need him to play. We just cannot afford to showcase him in the NHL or AHL ourselves. Hopefully before the deadline he gets a few games in and someone desperate takes a chance on him.

To reiterate...

With his demotion to the AHL (Worcester 2/2), that frees up a NHL roster spot and removes his salary from NHL cap hit.

(Sharks are still on the hook for his salary and contract counts against 50 max.)

The only thing different with being assigned to Syracuse is that he is not a goalie on the Worcester roster.

Syracuse paper on Niitty joining team

Quote:
Niittymaki’s contract pays him $2 million this season. [Sharks Assistant GM Wayne] Thomas said he and the Ducks reached an agreement to share the rest of that salary, but wouldn’t go into details.

I'll be very surprised of Thomas' statement of the Ducks paying some of Niitty's salary is the complete truth...it's more likely the Ducks are on the hook for Niitty's per diem.

Niitty makes strong debut for Crunch (but had little offensive help)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that Niittymaki on the splash page for the Syrucuse Crunch?

And Syracuse didn't even include Niittymaki in their clear day roster.

They added a goalie that might be able to come back and play (Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers)...the Crunch put their list together correctly. Niitty is eligible to play as long as one one of the two goalies on that list isn't available.
