The Craig Button lists always seem wonky to me. I know he's got the credentials to take him seriously but he really looks like he makes many of his choices just to be different.

Hamilton out of the top 10? Why? No other major list that I've seen rates him going outside the top 8 and many believe he may be the BEST all-around dman in the draft so I just can't fathom why he'd be that low. Obviously different scouts are going to evaluate and assess differently but I'd bet a fair chunk of change that Hamilton goes top 10.

Maybe it's because highly rated dmen slid last year so now many are expecting them to do the same this year.

As a contrary viewpoint though, with how wide open it seems to be this year after #1... I think you might even see the opposite this year... Larsson/Hamilton/Murphy may all go top 5/6 and Beaulieu and Siemens could go near to the top 10 as well.
