It shouldn't be a surprise and it doesn't mean much.
What this shows us is that our top 2 prospects are better than every other teams top 2 prospects. We shouldn't be upset that our 3-5 best prospects aren't listed ahead of other teams top 2.
Yeah, but the point is, there's plenty of bias. Several examples could be pointed out, but here's just one: Nick Bjugstad (sp). Same draft as Forbort, but taken (as well as ranked by scouts) 6-7 spots
than Forbort. So why does Bjugstad get included while Forbort does not? I'm just sayin', there's bias, that's all.
