I agree but it's pretty obvious with Sid, Jonathan and Drew on Scottys list, he must be using some projection here don't you think?
But that can be a dangerous way of thinking. I remember before lists like these became fashionable and they did the 1998 list with The Hockey News of top 50 players. Jagr was at #37 or something like that. Some people couldn't understand why Lindros wasn't there. It was generally agreed that he was going to be a staple on these future lists someday. Little did they know Lindros didn't do a whole lot after 1998 to add to his career and is far from a top 50 overall player. Jagr on the other hand was a bit too premature in early 1998 to be voted that high as well. Luckily for him he projected as many expected. I guess my point is you never know when a player's career is going to get derailed.
