I have a tremendous amount of respect for Button because he scouts these guys so heavily in person.
Burton's lists give you a look at how a GM and FO would setup their draft board. I guess that's the best way to explain them.

1. Nail Yakupov (#1 Oilers)
2. Mathew Dumba (#7 Wild)
3. Morgan Rielly (#5 Leafs)
4. Alex Galchenyuk (#3 Canadiens)
5. Teuvo Teravainen (#18 Hawks)
6. Griffin Reinhart (#4 Islanders)
7. Filip Forsberg (#11 Capitals)
8. Malcolm Subban (#24 Bruins)
9. Matt Finn (#35 Leafs)
10. Hampus Lindholm (#6 Ducks)
11. Cody Ceci (#15 Sens)
12. Jacob Trouba (#9 Jets)
13. Ryan Murray (#2 Blue Jackets)
14. Mark Jankowski (#21 Flames)
15. Andrei Vasilevski (#19 Lightning)
16. Zemgus Girgensons (#14 Sabres)
17. Radek Faksa (#13 Stars)
18. Derrick Pouliot (#8 Pens)
19. Ludvig Bystrom (#43 Stars)
20. Mikhail Grigorenko (#12 Sabres)
21. Tom Wilson (#16 Caps)
22. Tomas Hertl (#17 Sharks)
23. Michael Matheson (#23 Panthers)
24. Scott Laughton (#20 Flyers)
25. Gemel Smith (#104 Stars)
26. Brady Skeji (#28 Rangers)
27. Sebastien Collberg (#33 Canadiens)
28. Olli Maatta (#22 Pens)
29. Henrik Samuelsson (#27 Coyotes)
30. Phillip Di Giuseppe (#38 Canes)

1st rounders left off his top 30:
-Slater Koekkoek (#10 Lightning)
-Jordan Schmaltz (#25 Blues)
-Brendan Gaunce (#26 Canucks)
-Stefan Matteau (#29 Devils)
-Tanner Pearson (#30 Kings)

That's his final list from last year and I put what pick they went next to it. Matt Finn at 9, Ludvig Bystrom at 19, & Gemel Smith at 25 are the only really outrageous ones on there. The rest are pretty close to where they actually went but he does rate these guys on what he thinks they turn out in the NHL.
