    This is not his mock draft or how he sees the actual NHL draft going. This is his personal ranking on how he sees guys turning out, long-term.

    I understand that Axe,
    Personally I think insane to have Hughes at 12 and Tkachuk ahead of Svechnikov and Zadina regardless of it been his personal ranking, but whatever, wtf do I no rite.

    Personal or not, there's no kravstov. Does he think he will never come over? He's been the highest on Hayton for a while.

    He added in his notes that if he hasn't seen a player on more then 4 occasions he does not rank them.

    I actually dont mind Button's lists. He doesn't follow suit and isn't afraid to take risks with his picks. Some times it pays off, some times it doesn't. I still remember when he had Hampus Lindholm in his top 10 back in his draft year and he was the only one who had him anywhere near the top 10. Granted, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Either way, I dont mind his rankings. I take them for what they are; another former NHL scout (yes compared to alot of others who give rankings, Button actually used to be a legit NHL scout) who has an opinion. At least he gets out to the rinks, all over the world, and watches the kids.

    It seems like Button values NHL certainty more than high-end skill. Tkackhuk and Bouchard especially could be explained by that. Just seems like most rankings are moving towards valuing high-end skill more than anything else, so Button's rankings look a bit different because of that. But there's no need to bash him for having his own opinions - there aren't many guys who are better than him and release their rankings for free i.e. doesn't work for an NHL organization.

    I like Craig Button and always look forward to this list..
    It takes alot for a person to put out a list like this because you know its going to get scrutinized..
    I guess not everybody has to appreciate his opinion..
