Niemi might be slower getting across, but even so he will 90% of the time be in perfect position to make the stop.
Niemi over-commits like crazy (too), especially when going post-to-post. And his positioning is pretty awful. Greiss is much more orthodox than Niemi when it comes to body or glove positioning.
