Yeah, it's been said a ton of times by many players that they love playing for Nemo. Emphasis on "for Nemo". I don't recall any players putting it that way when Nabby was in nets.
The turning point in the season was when the team learned how to play with Niemi in net, they really focused on helping him out by clearing his rebounds and taking away the 2nd and 3rd opportunities. So, strangely, his biggest weakness as a goalie might be what made the team better defensively and why they play for him.
