They should both be on it unless something effed up went on.

I'm not going to argue about JDD, but I certainly wouldn't say that Montoya is easily a better prospect than Niittymaki.

Niittmaki played for Finland at the WJC.
Helped Turko win two Finnish Championships in three seasons.
Had two great season in Finland.
Struggle a bit in his first year in North America.
Improved greatly to become one of the AHL's best in year two.
Played 3 NHL games, allowing onegoal in each, and picking up 2 wins, including a crucial game over the New Jersey Devils

Also the only goalie in professional hockey to ever score a shorthanded OT game winning goal.

Also Ladd who went 4th in the draft is ranked at 31.
