I tend to agree with you John...
nobody can say easily until Montoya succeeds at the next level. Niittymaki succeeded in international play (and I think Montoya leading his team to gold this season gives him the edge in terms of that), but he's also put up good numbers in the AHL (yeah, so has Labarbera, but in his limited NHL action, Niittymaki played quite well, whereas Labarbera, in his limited action, played spotty). So yeah, it's tough to say one's definitely better than the other. But one big difference is that Montoya's about four years younger. Antero is 24.
