Ok, I'm not one to beat a dead horse, but I just can't let this slide.

Without sounding too Sesame Streetish, one of those names does not belong there. It's a shock that a hockey mind would associate a superbly talented PROSPECT with a bunch of guys who are old and have had their careers unfold already.

Rick Dipietro is the best NHL ready goaltending prospect in the league right now. Don't think for one second that he is a bust. He dominated the AHL for two seasons and proved he is far too good for the minor leagues. He's having a better preseason than most could have expected. He has 2 wins, a shared shut-out and was the most dominant player on the ice against Boston. He turned 22 years old last week. I'm sorry - but how he is labelled a bust is beyond me.
