I hated Niemi alot in the past but this season he's been rock solid. The defense in front of him is part of it but he's been great. Like he said after the Detroit game, he hasn't had to cheat.
Part of the reason why he's less injury prone is because he's less athlethic. No big groin strain. Keeps his weight on his padded knees mostly instead of putting pressure on ligaments. He has the ability to move well left to right even when on his knees so it works for him.
If only he didn't allow those nasty zero angle goals every now and then...
