With the NHL reportedly agreeing to allow each of its teams two amnesty buyoutsthat would count against the players' share of hockey-related revenue but not the salary capin order to ease the free-fall from a $70.2 million ceiling in 2012-13 to the $60 million cap proposed by ownership for 2013-14, it's only natural to speculate on how the Sharks will be exercising their buyout options

Personally, I would look into Anti Niemi. With lots of good prospects at goal, this seems to be a good place to look for options of easing a lower potential cap.

Out of everyone we have, I'd have to agree with Bubba83. But I'd rather they not go that route. While Boyle is getting older, he's still a great presence on the ice and off.

Niemi doesn't make much sense to buy out, his contract is for too little. He'd make a better trade bait, along with Boyle. But you are correct that we have a ton of depth at the goaltender position, I'd like to see some of them make the jump!

I'd feel really confident with Greiss as our starter.

I was referring to Stalock or Sateri, not Griess . Do you think Niemi is the solution?

Just felt like Niemi was very inconsistent and is not the long term answer for the team. Other stop-gap solutions might be Dan Ellis, Ty Conklin or perhaps Nabby?

I don't think Niemi is the solution in terms of buying out. I'd rather Niemi and Greiss split time this year. I'm really confident with Greiss in net, I think he's done a terrific job every time he's been given chances and I love his goaltending style - it's incredibly positioning/angle based like Nabby's was and I feel that's a lot more consistent than the style Niemi plays with seems more free-form and backed into the net. I also prefer Greiss when it comes to rebound control.
