**On 10-month hiatus while living overseas**

B/R Featured Columnist. I have covered both the Golden State Warriors and San Jose Sharks.

I love writing about, reading about and discussing pure sports topics; the mainstream media is too focused on "stories." I enjoy great stories, but my love for sports comes from a love for the battles between the lines.

    I still can't post a message to the "10 Players Who Need a Better Half" article, and apparently nobody else can, either. Otherwise you'd have more than zero comments by now.

    The main comment I've wanted to make is that I agree that Niemi is one of those who needs to have a better second half, and you seem to point to exactly how he can do that: by putting Greiss in goal an average of one every three games instead of his one out of four games in the first half. If I'm not mistaken, your target for the number of games Niemi should play the rest of the season fits that scenario. After all, fatigue could have something to do with Niemi's drop in consistency over the seven-game stretch before the All Star break In fact that seems especially likely, given Niemi's two straight shutouts recently right after getting some rest. He blanked the Flames on Jan. 24, after a Greiss start the previous night gave Antti three days off. Then, after taking it easy for a week, he roared into the second half with another beauty.
