West coast source has confirmed Antti Niemi will sign with the Sharks as early as tomorrow. I hear 2M base, possibly for just the 1 year.— Nick Kypreos (@RealKyper) September 1, 2010
First of all, the fact that Nick Kypreos is a star reporter now, and Matthew Barnaby an analyst, well, we now know how far hockey coverage has to go. Anyway, Niemi appears poised to sign in San Jose for 2 mildo, which is what he could have gotten here about three months ago. Anyway, we'll see how many times he says no when Dan Boyle and Dany Heatley are falling asleep in front of him.
