At this point, it's more accurate to say we're talking about a media personality questioning the decisions of current GM's. I think it's a safe bet that Doug Armstrong, Chuck Fletcher and Don Maloney are not looking at Button's list and wishing they had drafted Tinordi over Schwartz, Granlund or Gormley.
How do you know Tinordi will not be more valuable down the road, let's say, in about 5 years? You don't.

Button is only making a longterm projection and in his opinion a 6'7'' defenseman that is mobile, great defensively and can log 25+ minutes is more valuable to him than whatever he thinks Schwartz and cie. can bring to their respective team.
