So news today is Niemi has been signed for 4 years. All in all I do like that they have signed him, but 3.8 million isn't sitting right with me yet. I would have prefered to see him signed for 3.8 for 2 years or 4 years for something closer to 3 million per year.

Niemi has gotten hot since the all star break and the team feels like its back on track, Niemi is a huge part of this. Is Niemis play worth this contract yet? I think we needed to see more before this contract was made.
This does take a good chunk of cap space. Personally I have hoped someone would want Heatly and take that 7+ million off our books. Heatly is a good player but he isn't not worth the money we are paying for him.
Where do you think cap space relief will come from in the next few seasons?
