Niedermayer given more time to decide future

From Dan Wood of the Orange County Register:

With Scott Niedermayer’s wife, Lisa, expected to deliver the couple’s fourth child any day, the Ducks have given the star defenseman more time to decide on his playing future, General Manager Brian Burke said Thursday.

The Ducks had originally targeted Friday, when the NHL entry draft begins in Ottawa, as a deadline for answers from Niedermayer and right wing Teemu Selanne on whether they intend to play next season.

Now, however, Burke has told Niedermayer that the team will wait until at least Monday, with an “operative date” of July 1 – the first day of free agency.

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you get one more yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Oh don't let it kill you baby, don't let it get to you
Don't let it kill you baby, don't let it get to you
I'll be your bleedin' heart, I'll be your cryin' fool
Don't let this go too far
Don't let it get to you

Ballhype: hype it up!
