It should be interesting to see how this unfolds.
This plus Homer had this to say about Niitty:

You don't need to spend much time with Antero to get a feel for his knowledge of all aspects of the game, and what it takes to play at the highest level.

We believe Antero's understanding of the game will make him a good all around scout.
Regardless of what you believe Niitty wasn't hired just cause he was a former Flyer.
