I'd say now that Niemi has been signed, the starts will be split maybe 50/50 or 60/40, etc between Niittymaki and Niemi. Greiss is likely going to be traded along with another player for a big name defenseman who is somewhat young and speedy like Vlasic or Demers, and is playoff proven if possible. I don't think Greiss alone is enough to satisfy another team to want to give up a good D-man. Of all the skaters on our roster, these are who I'd say we should keep to keep our shot at the Cup strong.
Thornton, Marleau, Heatley, Clowe, Pavelski, Setoguchi, Couture, Nichol, Boyle, Murray, Vlasic, Demers.
I say use anyone from Huskins, Mitchell, McGinn, Wallin paired up with Greiss in the package to land a good D-man.
Who do you guys say we should keep and who should be offered in a trade?
