Antti Niemi struggled in the regular season, but played well in the playoffs.

With management and coaching evaluations out of the way, the next step in the analysis of the San Jose Sharks is each player. Having covered the team's best player on the blue line and at forward, it seems only natural to examine its best goalie.

Like the rest of the players, I will identify the good, the bad and the ugly truth for Nemo: Should he be part of next year's roster and what would the team need to get in return if they let him go?
