Yet another update on the Sharks' injuries in goal from David Pollak:

PROGRESS REPORT ON NIEMI

Antti Niemi is taking shots, leading more people to believe he'll be ready for Opening Night. Thomas Greiss is getting re-acclimated to the smaller ice and doing so very nicely. He's 2-0 in the preseason with a 1.00 GAA and .941 SP%.

GP Advice: I'm a big fan of Greiss (he's been a Top-25 goalie on my Top-150 Rankings for almost 2 years) and I think he'll have solid backup fantasy value for the first half of the season. His strong start to the preseason reinforces this.
