There's almost no other players besides flash right now I would even venture to call solid. These guys all have glaaaaaaring holes in their play...
Players like Effort (who used to be a ZvT god) now loses to any noob who happens to play Terran. That he used to be considered part of the mythic "S-Class" seems almost absurd now.
Stork, the commander, loses to hydra busts way more often than he should. So what if he can beat flash with a crazy build... he still loses to

in a straight-up game.
Bisu has lost the balls to play tricky, and people left and right abuse that fact..
Meanwhile Jaedong's playstyle is now too well-understood for him to win consistently in anything but a Bo5. As far as aggressive players go, this guy rages with the best of the Berserker and July, but to really stay at the top of the scene of starcraft, you need a stable management style I so rarely see from JD these days.
On the other hand, potential rising stars like Baby and, hell why not just say MvP show striking potential in their ability to take games off the best, the consistency of their play is anything but reassuring. It's hard to have confidence in a guy when you wonder if a lurker glitch hadn't happened, if would've even qualified for the OSL.
While MVP in 2 of his games last night showed brilliant play...

Letting his opponents double-nex, to which he responded with double-CC behind mines. Abusing his knowledge that Stork and Best would likely play it safe, he scraped himself back into the game economically.... And then he suddenly adds like 50 facts when his opponent expands...
This ability of gaining a slight economic advantage in TvP and transitioning it into an instant win is something I haven't yet seen an answer to. I'd very much look forward to this kid's sick PvT in the future, but I don't know how well he'll fair once his opponents stop underestimating him and deny that initial economic surge.
Since we're talking about Terrans, why not talk about the proleague monsters Light and Sea. They might be able to stomp noobs left and right in pro-league, but they lose to nobodies in individual leagues... literally all the time.
Ever since Shine burned through last year's leagues, it's been apparent that in the pro starcraft scene basically anybody can take convincing games off of anybody else... While this may drive competition and generally improve the quality of gameplay, it has become much more difficult to forge the legends we so desperately look for.
Until then, I suppose, we have Flash.
