Looking back at his lists, Button has had hits and misses. He ranked Baertschi at #6 last year — pretty clear he saw something most others didn't and in that case he was right (obviously, we'll see how he adjusts to the NHL long-term but the early junior and NHL results are quite impressive).
I dont discount Button, and I've tried to contact him in the past.
I'd like to see him do what ISS does and provide a Risers and Fallers list to accompany his ranking.
For a player like Maata to be a projected top 10 pick by the 'consensus' (i know i'll get raked for using that word) and not make Craig's list until last month is a bit odd....especially since he's obviously seen him play more than any of us, is strange.
I like his lists for the 'drama' they create on the interweb, but they are very good pieces for discussion.
Button is a professional, with a less than stellar track record....I understand why people discount his opinion.
I use it as another source.
