Button released his December rankings today. Jones still number one, Drouin on the rise:

Good to see he has the same top 6 as everyone else.

Still in love with the Russians and Morrissey after that.

For the most part it's a logical list aside from hating on Risto.

Good to see him finally warm up to Drouin, even if he is late to the party. I'm slightly surprised that he still has Pulock below Zadorov and Morrissey, I'd be interested in hearing his logic, but they are all very good d prospects. Also a bit surprised that he continues to have Jones over MacKinnon.

Man oh man, the idea that you could get a player of Monhan's caliber at #6 is just unreal. What a great looking draft.

Connor Hurley at 38 gave me the giggles but this is one of the few Button lists I can respect. The draft is so deep this year that the rankings are going to be all over the place for everyone, it's really only the top 5-10 you can get in arguments about unless you're telling me Connor Hurley is #38 ;)

I think he's played bad/not at he's best when Button has been scouting him.

Maybe he doesn't see that much upside in Ristolainen to warrant to go at top 15 or so.

joe89 12-04-2012 03:50 PM

He now has Wennberg safely ahead of Burakovsky and De la Rose.

Hugo Sham 12-04-2012 03:52 PM

love a deep draft. love it even more that Timmins has 4 of the first 60 picks for the habs
:yo:

Sartorial 12-04-2012 03:59 PM

I really appreciate the work Button does. Chances are he's seen almost every one of these players live, in clouding Risto. The structure of this list is eerily similar to mine which I posted four days ago. Top six being exactly the same.

hototogisu 12-04-2012 04:01 PM

Good to see Domi at 12. Seems like it's taken scouts a really long time to buy into Domi but he keeps producing. Not sure I would personally take him that high myself, but I'm glad he's getting his due.

Sartorial 12-04-2012 04:03 PM

Ps Thrillhous, your user name and picture is the best!

Garl 12-04-2012 04:04 PM

Slepyshev hasn't progressed that much, he in TOP 60 seems to be a reach.
Where's Yakimov on the other hand?

Whats your opinion on Hurley?

From all the stuff I've read about him, he is a potential first rounder/early 2nd. What makes him not worthy of #38?

Daneurism 12-04-2012 04:24 PM

Can someone put Ryan Fitzgerald's numbers into context for me? He doesn't seem to be tearing up the EJHL and is that not a league that is one step below the USHL?(Please correct me if i'm wrong). Figured maybe he is a long term project but he's kind of diminutive in size.

Stats aren't everything but does this make a 96 like Egle, who's doing very well in the EJHL, look even better?

Alberta tough 12-04-2012 04:29 PM

Nice to see Kanzig make the list.

Jim Morrison 12-04-2012 04:43 PM

Alexander Wennberg, this years Zibanejad? Riser from Djurgårdens IF.

Daneurism 12-04-2012 04:50 PM

Pretty good draft class when talents like Eric Roy and Matt Murphy fall outside of a top 60

Rhino Reilly 12-04-2012 04:57 PM

Nurse seems pretty low. Other then that can't find much to disagree with.

Leafs03 12-04-2012 05:02 PM

Dam Monahan at 6! Thats how u know this draft is soo freaking deep! cant wait for it!

Had him as a Top-20 myself. Crazy draft.

I wouldn't read all that much into EJHL stats. There've been 16 year olds who've come through the league over the years that have put up huge numbers and not really done much at higher levels. Then there've been guys like Charlie Coyle or Brian Dumoulin who've come through at older ages and put up relatively modest stats and go onto great success at higher levels. Fitzgerald's stats are not impressive at all but I don't think you can draw any conclusions off that.

All that said, Button has been a fan of Fitzgerald's since his strong performance at the US prospects game back in September. He was also pretty good for the US team at the World Jr A Challenge, which Button did some broadcasting from.

He said on a podcast a few weeks ago that Wennberg could creep into his top 20.

Lol my cousin played hockey with him and is going to watch him when Victoria comes to play Edmonton. I feel like a ****** because I told my cousin "ya he is big but I havent seen him on any draft lists and has no goals". Stupid me
