TSN isn't really that biased towards the Leafs, it was explained in that thread (Kessel was left off of a top 95 players list, and Toronto's been at the bottom of many of their power rankings when they really didn't belong there).

Rielly is way, way too high. Anyone who tells you he's better than Yakupov loses all credibility right there.

And to justify Ritchie being so high, that list was mostly based off of recent performance as well as high end potential. I think him being right behind Strome is rather telling though, and that they're feeding off of each other, not Ritchie riding his coattails.

Button is actually a very good scout, but I can't help but feel that something like Rielly over Yakupov is just a crazy idea to get more hits on his latest article.
