I quests I just don't see why a player's likeliness to become an NHLer shouldn't be factored in. Nikitin was an aberration. Why ignore things just because there's an exception to the rule every now and then? That's what makes this an inexact science. Ignoring likeliness to become an NHLer when rating prospects would be like a bank ignoring their opinion on the likeliness of a loan to default when rating their loan portfolio. Just because every now and then a highly rated loan goes into default or a highly rated loan all of a sudden gets paid off doesn't mean that banks should ignore the rating process altogether just because there were a few exceptions. You're certainly entitled to your opinion and can vote whatever way you want but I see no reason to not include such risk factors, even if they are just opinions.
