Here's an article on Antti Niemi, who knows he has to be better right out of the gate for the Sharks:
Sharks goalie Antti Niemi knows there were times last season when he wasn't at the top of his game. That, he acknowledged Wednesday, is something his team probably can't afford with a compressed season ahead. "I've got to get better at staying more at my better level," he said after two scrimmages marked the midpoint of camp. "Especially in a short season like this, there shouldn't be any stretch where I'm not playing well."
