NHL Trade Rumor: Antti Niemi Could Be A Possibility For Columbus Blue Jackets
Assuming the Columbus Blue Jackets will look to move on from Steve Mason as their No. 1, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com suggests San Jose Sharks goalie Antti Niemi could be a trade target for Jackets General Manager Scott Howson:
“It’s an interesting question to ponder this offseason, as Niemi has three years remaining on a contract that carries a manageable $3.8 million cap hit. Furthermore, the Sharks are likely to revisit the Rick Nash discussion, after they were unable to land the Blue Jackets’ scorer in February. It’s pure speculation here, but Niemi could potentially be offered up in order for the Sharks to make that trade happen.”
