I think his glove is probably better than niemi's too. He may not be very fast laterally, but he never seem to be caught out of position.
I am not refering to Crawford with regards to Turco

Crawford looks like Patrick Roy compared to Turco.

But when comparing Crawford/Niemi the style Crawford plays is more safe and fundamental thus he is more safe goalie to have in net

ah, My point was that while he's not an elite goalie, I don't think it would be a stretch to call crawford a good nhl goalie. I wouldn't mind having him in net for the foreseeable future assuming he's not really expensive.
