I've always wanted people to go back at look at rankings and decide who consistently does the best job, what the deviation is and how well their rankings successfully predict the success of the players. Not an easy study to do and not one the draft pundits are likely interested to do. The NHL draft is still generally a crap shoot.
With Button he does these lists by himself. With the scouting services there's multiple scouts and they go with the consensus. I'm sure if you looked at just one of those scouts lists at those scouting services they would have some off the board rankings compared to the consensus too.

Button also doesn't rank them to where he thinks they'll get drafted but as how he thinks they end up latter down the road in the NHL.
