    Owen Tippett and Nic Hague are top 20 players for most people... just not Button. Both are on McKenzie's list. Matthew Strome is a borderline top 20 as well.

    No, Button just makes lists that are closer to what NHL teams have. Granted, he doesn't watch as much Junior as actual scouts, he still watches.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    You know what the most common comment in all of my draft reports is... "needs to add muscle" these kids are all in varying stages of growth spurts. The weight will come

    Shane Bowers is my boy this year. Real dark horse for this year's draft. I think he'll be underrated all year because he's playing in the USHL instead of the Q.

    Unless you think we'll lose in the finals. That would be awfully rude.
