What I mean is who in the NHL is a 7B and is 7B his ceiling or right now he's a 7B. Also if you were to put Laughton in the top 50, where do you see him?
9.0 is like Crosby.
8.5 is great first liner/All-Star.
8.0 is average/good first liner.
7.5 is great second liner.
7.0 is average/good second liner.
6.5 is great third liner.
6.0 is average/good second liner.
5.5 is great fourth liner.
5.0 is average/good fourth liner.

That's how I interpret the "potential" grades.

Now for the ability to reach that...

A - pretty much guaranteed to reach the potential grade number given
B - could fall one number
C - could fall two numbers
D - could fall three numbers
F - could fall four numbers / not reach potential at all

So a 7.0B means he falls between the range...

6.0, 6.5, or 7.0
