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"
Thats because Nabby thought he was Brodeur and would try and whip passes to the dmen. Niemi definetly knows his limitations with the puck. I wish he was a little better at playing it but its hard to knock the guy.
