Ducks GM Brian Burke will pro-rate his salary and pay $4 million of his $6.75 million contract. Those savings against the salary cap will either buy Slurpees or a forward who can actually score without Teemu Selanne holding their hands. (The Ducks are 6-8-3 without him and Niedermayer.)
Meanwhile, Niedermayer is training with two NHL pariahs: Jeff Friesen and Travis Green. Friesen, a speedy left winger with a lazy streak, was given a one-year contract with the Flames last year. It wasn’t renewed. And Green, who’s been traded eight times, played 24 games with Toronto last season. He’s currently signed to the Swiss League.
We get it, Nieds. You’re not messing around. If Radiohead wants to practice with Milli Vanilli, that’s their call.
