Niemi is a decent goalie, and seems like a nice enough guy, but he's by no means ever going to be a fan favorite.
Have you ever watched Nemo up close? Dude keeps creepily muttering to himself in finnish and is overall an ice cold emotionless robot on the ice.

Kind of hard for fans to get pumped with that.
