Anyone that actually WATCHES the prospects is going to have a very different list than what the scouting services come up with by consensus. I wouldn't put Thrower in my Top 45 even, Forsberg is not in my Top 10, I would have Aberg in Top 15, etc.
Whatever his evaluation ability might be — he usually gives ample reasoning for where he ranks the players and why. He also sees a lot of them play so his opinions are pretty informed.
Oh I know how he does his lists. I also know there's a reason why he's not a GM anymore and why he was a failure of a GM.
Grigorenko that low is ridiculous.
