Prospect Grades

I'm not really a huge prospect guy, but have been researching the draft for my fantasy league draft and am trying to at least categorize guys roughly. So I made a guess at the standard hockey futures grades for likely first round guys. Tell me why these grades suck (or are awesome...but more likely suck):

Yakupov 9.0C
Grigorenko 8.5C
Galchenyuk 9.0D
Murray 8.0C
Trouba 8.0C
Teräväinen 8.0C
Forsberg 7.5B
Reilly 8.0D
Dumba 8.0D
Ceci 8.0D
Koekkoek 8.0D
Aberg 8.0D
Collberg 8.0D
Finn 8.0D
Skjei 7.5C
Reinhart 7.5C
Di Giuseppe 7.5C
Pouliot 7.5C
Bystrom 7.5C
Hertl 7.5D
Lindholm 7.5D
Slepyshev 8.0D*
Faksa 7.0B
Maata 7.0B
Girgensons 7.0C
Wilson 7.0C
Kerdiles 7.0C
Gaunce 7.0C
Samuelsson 7.0C
Dansk 8.0D*
Vasilevski 8.0D*
Subban 8.0D*

I would put Grigorenko at 9.0D myself. Boom or bust factor is high, but I do think he's a franchise player if he gets it together.

Murray has that kind of potential, eh? His numbers are good, but not spectacular, not as good as, say, Ceci's, and he's basically a year older than everyone else. So I kind of expect utter domination in that case. Plus he's likely to be picked by clb, and they'll screw him up somehow.

I guess, he's in the ballpark as some of the top-end defensive guys, but far ahead defensively? Is that right? Like a Weber, but without the physicality?

I think 8.5 as a more complete package, not just points or offence. Think Duncan Keith, who has developed for a long time and is now pretty good.

Forsberg is higher than a 7.5B. 8.5C.

G2P - you're a Finn and still write Määttä as Maata?

I really wish HF would get rid of the 0.5 increment scale and move to the 1-100 scale and also get rid of the ABCDF scale and get with the +, - ranking

Like Yakupov for me would be an 88+ meaning on a 1-100 scale I'd give him 87 with the expectation he could end up better.

For Grigorenko I would give him an 84- meaning, yet again, 1-100, 84, could do worse.

I don't necessarily agree with these. Then again it's all a shot in the dark right now because nobody knows what goes through HF's head(s) when it comes to grades.
