Oh man, that sucks for us Wings' fans!!! Well, they still probably don't have the depth to get out of the West..........I still like Detroit.

There's a few goaltenders in that range of skill and pay still available so they shouldn't have much problem replacing Niemi I don't think.

Niemi himself is a good example of how you don't need a top named goalie nowadays to win the Stanley Cup.

The guy kind of defeats his own purpose based on what he accomplished last year.

Niemi is pretty much an average goalie who got hot for a couple rounds. He's not worth 4 million.

There won't be much dropoff in the regular season with whatever weak goalie they get (Huet started half the Hawks game last season and was terrible, Niemi started the other half and was average, and the Hawks still finished with 112 points). The postseason will be the difference. Is Marty Turco capable of getting hot for a couple rounds like Niemi did? Probably not, but whatever. Niemi is almost just as unlikely to do that again.

It sucks, but it was expected. This is Niemi's chance for a big payday, so he'll have to take it. Whoever gives him 4 million is going to be disappointed though.

If you think 26W/7L, 2.25 GAA, and a save % of .912 is average…

Still surprised Turco didn't go with the multi-year deal with Philly.

I think he priced himself right out of the market, early on. Too big of a flooded goalie market this year. If he got this gig in Chicago, I think he is lucky.

Neimi ******* sucks, Turco would be an improvement although he gets smoked at the joe most the time (yay for us)

So Turco says he won't play for less than $3m but is willing to sign with Chicago for $1.5? Huh?

the pay discount is contingent on brian campbell doing spin-o-ramas on turco's *** face all season. sort of a signing bonus
