According to the Blackhawks official website, the team has matched the offer sheet for Niklas Hjalmarsson for 4 years and $14 million. Hjalmarsson and Niemi were expected to be priorities for the Blackhawks this offseason and with Hjalmarsson now locked up Bowman can focus his attention on possibly signing Niemi before his arbitration hears on July 29th. Stan Bowman still has a lot of work ahead of him with John Madden, Nick Boynton and Jordan Hendry all up for new contracts.

    We need niemi! He saved so many goals, he should have been mvp! Pay him what he wants, he’s worth it. Sharp, other players are valuable but Niemi is number one on the valuable list.

  • MIKE

    No one ever heard of Niemi until last season. A BIG part of his success were the guys in front of him, including Hjalmarsson. People are acting like this is the coming of another Tony ‘O’ or Glen Hall. He is what he is, with a chance of maybe getting to that status. You have to have the guys in front to help and that’s what they have done.
