I might be wrong but IIRC Forsberg was rated second round in THNs draft guide and I think McKenzie was still with them then.
McKenzie's rankings aren't his personal opinions on the players, he polls 10 different scouts and takes the consensus and ranks them accordingly.

He joined TSN in 1986 after leaving The Hockey News, Forsberg was drafted in 1991.
