Najer must be strong - his rating is way higher than Petrosian or Spassky at their peak!

It is just wrong to compare results from the past to results at present. Both Petrosian and Spassky are giants in chess. That's what counts, nothing else. Our Hungarian team were the Magic Magyars in the 1950s. It would be funny to compare their playing style to a modern football team today then degrade their performance accordingly. Everything must be measured in their own time and context. Najer is a talented player but comparing him to Spassky is funny.
