I read the whole post and was mostly just being a smart ass (probably didn't use the right emoticon.) I like Niittymaki, but I want to see him in more than 3 NHL games before I call him a winner. We haven't really seen Niittymaki in any high pressure games (besides the AHL, but a AHL and NHL playoff game are night and day), so I don't see how you can really call him a winner or not. There are several NHL goaltenders who play great in meaningless games, but don't do squat when it's on the line. I'm definitely not saying Niittymaki is one of those, however, at this point it's far too early to call him a winner.
