Nobody knows for certain who will be more valuable in 5 years.

What is known, is that Schwartz was taken at #14 in the actual draft, and Tinordi was taken at #22. Tinordi moved to a new level, where he showed the same as before the draft, a lot of untapped potential. Schwartz also moved to a new level, a higher level actually, and absolutely dominated that level. He showed that he is too good for college hockey.

And now, with this year of new information, Button has decided that Tinordi actually should have been taken at #8, and Schwartz should still have been taken at #14? With that logic, I really don't care that Button once held a position of power in the hockey world.
