Erixon rose because he was traded to the Rangers and Button thought "ooo, i've heard of him he was traded he mus be good".

I was watching TSN last night with my dad and I asked him "Who the hell is Craig Button? I've never heard of him."

My dad told me but I really can't remember who he is. Apparently my brain knew what it was doing because I'd hate to allocate memory to this guy. Seriouslly, who is he?

He was the former head of scouting for the Dallas Stars before becoming the GM of the Calgary Flames in the early 2000s. He was fired after I think 3 seasons in Calgary.

Button has a good track record in scouting, but he was not a good GM.

As for his "re-draft" rankings, who really cares? People take these rankings too seriously. At the end of the day, rankings are meaningless.

Rundblad's a great prospect, but acting like he's leaps and bounds better than Erixon really isn't fair, and it certainly isn't a new development since Erixon was traded to the Rangers that the two are considered similar in value, or that someone would rank Erixon higher.

As you may recall, in March, prior to the Erixon trade, THN's Future Watch, which is compiled using 18 NHL scouts, ranked Erixon as the 15th best prospect in the NHL. Rundblad was ranked the 22nd best prospect.

You guys are way too agreeable and nice. Put Ellis in the NHL and he fails because he's too small and slow. At best he becomes a bottom pairing specialist or is forced into the Top 4 because the defense on the team he plays for sucks.

I agree. They had the 2010 re-draft last night and Skinner was ranked 5th.

I'd have Tavares higher than #3 and yes I'd have Runblad much higher than where they have him rated here.

Guys.

It's CRAIG BUTTON.

The fact that some people here are having coronaries due to his opinion is mindblowing.

If anything, the fact that he didn't endorse the Senators prospects is a good sign.

This is the guy who released Martin St. Louis from the Flames.

He also tried out for the Senators and didn't make it did he not.

But it doesn't make him sound as stupid when you liken him to Pierre Gauthier...

Hedman over Tavares? The whole Tavares-Duchene comparison can go on for a while, and I happen to think Tavares beats Duchene. But what on earth has Hedman done to jump ahead of Tavares? 26 points and soft against Tavares who nearly put in 30 goals and 70 points on the Island.

And Seguin above Hall in the other one? Maybe if we're talking about team success, but then Cowen would be a lot higher due to his Memorial Cup and Calder Cup by the age of 19.

How come no love for our prospects??? I was watching when they were re-doing the draft and I was like mad at them.....I was expecting Rundblad at least in top 10 and Cowen as well.
