Niedermayer Brothers Coming to Vancouver?

Scott Niedermayer was on Mojo radio this morning and confirmed that he and his brother Rob have talked about the possibility of signing in Vancouver.

This is of course pending their contract status in the new CBA. However Vancouver fans should be very excited about the possiblity of having the reigning Norris Trophy winner patrolling the blue line... and hey, Rob is no slouch either.

These rumours have been floating around for awhile now, it's nice to have confirmation from the players themselves that this is a legitimate possibility.

He also had an interesting comment on the pending CBA deal and ratification...

Paraphrasing: "If players weren't prepared to go beyond where they are now they could have had a deal a long time ago."

So in other words, there are players who knew this could go 2 years and are prepared to go further. How many is the question.

Niedermayer didn't say how he would vote but I got the impression that he will vote in favour of the deal.

Thanks for the encouraging comments. I'm hoping to get this thing off the ground now that there is some hockey to talk about :).
