I really liked Niinimaa's play, all things considered. He played a physical game, made good outlet passes and you can see he has good offensive instincts. He's still a little hesitant at times, imo, but I suspect he will show more confidence as he becomes more familiar with the team. I'm still not convinced Dandy is a good partner for him but, then again, it may be just a question of adaptation.
A good indication of how he fits will be against a fast skilled team like Ottawa. I don't see Spezza using him as a pylon.
