The Montreal Canadiens have picked up off the waiver wire from the Florida Panthers Antti Niemi. In three games in Pittsburgh this year where he started the season, he had a 7.49 GAA and a save percentage of .797. He then had a slight improvement in save percentage in Florida at .872. Overall, Niemi has a 6.74 GAA and .832 save percentage.
I don’t like this move at all. How did Scrivens work out as an insurance policy? This smells the same. Let Fucale get a game or two if Lindgren tires. Makes no sense at all to me. It isn’t like the habs are a cup contender
