.....We know the Sharks have a good team, as complacent and lazy as they can get some times, but without Niemi against the Red Wings, the Sharks would be golfing already. I'm not sure Deslauriers is quite in the same class, no matter how many rebouds Niemi gives up. A lot of goaltenders are lucky to have great teams in front of them, Osgood, for example, has made a career of it. And though we know it's rhetorical, I'm not sure "Uncle Antti" translates into Finnish the same way...D'
