He's bad, and yes Nabakov could physically play the puck better than Niemi but Nabakov had impossibly bad decision making. Niemi seems like he knows the right thing to do with the puck he just can't make the puck go where he wants it to go.
You for instance RARELY see Niemi turn the puck over and have it end up in the back of the net. Nabakov did that a few times a year and you always put your face in your hands and cried a little. I remember the GDT's filling up with "DAMNIT NABBY JUST FREEZE THE PUCK"
