    Default Backstrom or Neimi for this season

    Guys, I drafted Neimi and got Backstrom off the waiver wire (I also have Miller) who would you think will have a better season?

    I thought about dropping Neimi and picking up another foward...like Schenn or Doan...thoughts?

    I like Niemi better by a great deal. Better team, more starts, and less injury prone.

    Personally, I'm very underwhelmed by Niemi. Injury prone is real but so is his years of greatness. Backstrom is playing for a contract and has a very eager and mortally driven Harding chomping ago his bit.

    I think Backstrom puts up career numbers this year. Just my opinion. Optimistic opinion.

    How can you take Niemi over Backstrom? Backstrom is easily the better goalie and with the improvements Minnesota has made, it's not even close IMO.

    Keep Backstrom, deal Niemi.

    I am not big on any of these two guys. But I would stick with Neimi because San Jose has no one else to go to. Even though I think Backstrom is a better goalie.
