Central Scouting Rankings

Has anyone else ever wondered why the Central Scouting Bureau seems to be able to compile data from multiple leagues on either side of the Atlantic, but seem incapable of evaluating North American and European talent on the same list?

It seems to me there's as much variety between playing in the Czech junior league and the KHL as there is between the Czech junior league and the USHL. Maybe that's just me.

It certainly has always made the task of previewing a draft very interesting, as relative ranks often seem almost dreamt up.

I guess it creates a need for interpreters and speculators like us bloggers and Bob McKenzie, so I'll not complain any further.
