Niemi LATELY = Howie almost all of last year, stealing games.
How quickly everyone just forgets. Right now Niemi is the better goalie but an awful lot of goalies have stood on their head this year with better defenses in front of them. If the question you are posing is who do I want in net for us AT THE PRICE we got him for?
Jimmy Howard please.
Howard has not been stealing games all year. He hasn't been stealing games hardly at all.
He hasn't been bad, but lets not overrate Howard here. Niemi won a cup with a stacked roster just like Osgood did twice, and I'm sure we would take Ozzie in his prime over Howard. Niemi is getting overpaid based on a season of performance but right now he is a better goaltender.
