Sharks Waive Antero Niittymaki, Pick Him Up?

The Sharks just waived Antero Niittymaki, anyone else think he'd be worth picking up? Who knows how long Boucher will be out with his injury, and Niittymaki is UFA at the end of the season. He could be a decent rental option who could push Cam Ward. If Boucher does come back early, he can always be traded before the deadline or waived again. Charlotte's goaltending is shakey at the moment with Murphy out with an injury, and Peters up replacing Boucher. I would say claim Niittymaki, and either trade or waive Boucher when he comes back. IMO Boucher has been quite a disappointment. Peters or Murphy could have done just as good if not better. Murphy hadn't allowed a goal with the Canes yet, but wasn't given a chance to start a game.
