NHL.com-Tallon-We Have Interest In Niemi

Dale Tallon on Niemi: "Do I have interest in him? We have any player with his history, that is a champion. We're open for business 24-7." 34 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Translation on Tallon comment: Not denying interest, so clearly something there. Again, I wouldn't be shocked if Niemi winds up a Panther. 33 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I don't think it has a terrific chance of happening, but that is indeed very interesting...

Niemi is a FA. Huet would have nothing to do with this as it'd be a signing not a trade.

I would Love to trade Vokoun for whatever and sign up for a niemi/clemmenson tank year.

Then have Niemi and Markstrom going forward the year after.

Looks to me like a Twitter account for someone who works for NHL.com. Virtually the same thing.

Ah okay. I just like to click a link, but a rumor is a rumor.

Soon as they let him walk I figured he'd be a Panther. Would love to see Vokoun with a winner, and us sign him.

I'm more interested in what we do with Vokoun, I'd like to hear some rumors on that first!
If we can move him and get something decent back I would love to see Niemi here. Hells yeah.

Niemi would be awesome for tanking. He will be awful without Hawks. Clemmensen could won a cup with Hawks

If we can get Niemi for under 2M$ a year, trade Vokoun for offensive help + 1rst rounder i'd be a happy camper. I don't want to see more than 2M$ max for Niemi. I feel the kid is a "shooting star"

And yet, Huet didn't do well with them, Khabi wasn't very good until his last year (a contract year, mind you) as well. Niemi was a pretty good goalie with them, not terrific at all and wouldn't be lights out here, but he helped the team win.

Don't think we're going to get that much for Vokoun, but who knows.

I would think a 2 year deal with Niemi, where he can platoon with Markstrom in 2011-12, would make sense going forward. And we could trade Vokoun to the Flyers or Sens.

What would we do with Clemmensen though? Could we get rid of him or would we have to keep him as well?

I'm ok with whatever Niemi wants (up to $4 mil) for one year. If he wants more than two years, I could live with $2.5 mil for two or $2 mil for three or more.

T-Vo to a contender, though. Please!

Sure we're interested in him, as long as we don't have to give Vokoun away for peanuts. I don't see where Vokoun is going to go, though. Everyone says Philly - I don't see that.

Interesting. I'm down for it as long as we can get a good return for Vokoun.

Maybe a young top 6 player +mid round + decent salary dump pick for Vokoun.

I agree, and coming to the Panthers is not the best situation for him. During finals I definitely felt that neither Niemi nor Leighton are going to be all that special this year.

Well, the question is, do you guys really see us moving Vokoun before the trade deadline? I mean, I only ask cause, while he's not an all-star, I don't think he'll be on the FA market for that long... This is fun to think about though.

My best guess is trade Clemmsensen to NSH for a Pick as they need a Backup imo

Low Pick

Then Sign Niemi for 1 or 2 years at 2 Million a piece

Then wait till the dealine, and maybe Philly Bites on the Chance to get Vokoun ( Think Carle + 1st is most likely the return along with Cheap throw in like Boucher for the rest of the year to Platoon with Niemi)

Call up Markstrom and Plattoon Niemi and Him for this year and next depending on contract

This. If they can get a solid (I'm not expecting spectacular) return for Vokoun, I'm all for this. Niemi isn't any kind of stud, but he's certainly a solid goalie and would at the very least let them take their time on Markstrom, and at best allow them to have an excellent 1-2 punch in the two.
