It is refreshing - but he's often letting his biases impact his scouting (see grigorenko and other russians). I think its good to see an independent scout's list. But he acts very confident about his list when I think he should take it with a grain of salt. He was wrong about Grigorenko for instance. It's interesting to see the parallel's between couts and grigorenko's situations. Couts would of fell those extra few spots if he was russian too.

Button was right in ranking Jankowski high though - he's doing quite well for providence college as a 17 year old which speaks quite well for his upside.
