I think they made a pitch at Nabakov, it wasn't happening, so they tried to upgrade the D in front of Leighton. I just hope guys like Hartnell, Giroux, and Leino are able to keep the momentum they had in the playoffs.
I agree that Niemi didn't set the world on fire with his play, but he's got a ring and he's better than what the Flyers have now. Considering he was eventually signed for $2 mil, I don't see how they wouldn't want the upgrade.
