love watching him skate and play, but hate the way he's always yapping up until one of his teammates skates over to get between him and someone else, then he starts throwing cheap shots.
Nah, I'm an actual fan of the game and not the typical Pens fanboy who takes great offense to any ill speaking of his holiness Cindy Criesby. And yeah he has a habit of waiting until a big scrum starts and then throwing some shots from behind. Also been known to do a bit of diving. I honestly think his personality is more suited for that of a soccer player than a hockey player. But his skill on the ice cannot be questioned.
Hopefully this doesn't turn into the 2010 series when Niemi basically stole the Cup for Chicago.
While Niemi was underrated/underregarded for his contribution to that SC championship, he didn't steal it for Chicago.
I think it was an overall team effort, but if anybody was the catalyst for the Hawks, it was Dustin Byufglien.
