Default Dallas Acquires Niinimaa

Dallas trades dman John Erskine and a second round pick in 2006 for Janne Niinimaa and a 5th round pick in 2007. They sure do love Finns.

A new day and a new Finn in Dallas.. What's next? Signing Koivu on the offseason, trading for Ruutu bros?

Dallas got themselves a underperforming blueliner with the potential to find his game again surrounded by his countrymen for a decent #6-7 defender. A low risk-high reward here again.. Dallas is really going for the cup this season.

Very weird trade in my opinion. I would of said Dallas was already VERY strong on the Defense.

Great move by the surging Stars. They've been red hot lately and they managed to add more depth to their blue line. Niinimaa will be a great addition. :0pouce:

Heh heh, I suppose Turco should clean out his locker because Kiprusoff's taking his job any day now.

Incidently, is there a player in the NHL who's last name has more vowels than Niinimaa?

Both Niedermayers? Probably some others too.
