I liked Niinimaa as an Islander and certainly don't agree with the Brisebois comparison. He's been struggling last year, but so has Ribeiro. I will certainly not hide that I'm extatic he's gone and like the simple fact we're moving on. If Niinimaa is atrocious maybe we'll be hearing we got fleeced and that might even be true, but my first reaction was just "thank god it's over". Sorry if this sounds cruel.
