Analysis: Niemi is due to make $4.5 million next season, and would be bought out at $3 million spread over two years. The ninth-year player, who won a Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010, is coming off a disappointing season in which he went 12-12-4 and had a 3.3 goals-against average in 37 games. He became the odd-man out in Dallas behind Kari Lehtonen and after Ben Bishop was acquired in a trade last month.
