Craig Button Releases list of Top 50 NHL affiliated prospects (5 Canucks)

Anyone else really pleased by this?

 

I knew we had some good prospects, but I had always assumed that every other team had prospects that were probably just as good.  This list makes me realize that we have more high-end prospects than any other team, and in particular, more than any other Canadian team.

 

(Taken with a grain of salt because it is Craig Button)

Cody Glass #4, yet Kole Lind who's outscoring him with lesser linemates doesn't even make the list...

 

"Why didn't Button list Kole Lind..."

I'd bet a lot of team have a 'Lind' missing from this list. On a good note, seeing how he's responded to being snubbed elsewhere... ::D

 

This list probably won't help with some of the naysayers on here but hopefully it helps even a little bit with those unconvinced that better days may in fact be ahead.

At least this is an indication the numbers of good prospects we have in the pool.

I guess I'm one of the few who think Button actually knows what he's talking about.

 

He had Jake at #26 (or thereabouts) on his mid-year ratings while everyone else had Jake in top 10, but moved him up for his final rating. I think Canuck Nation got to him. In hindsight, seems like he had Jake pegged properly to begin with.

in fairness nhl.com had jake as #6 for north american skaters themselves and even bleacher report had him 6 on the mock

Craig Button is ok in general... can't hate on him after he has our boy as #1 though! 

 

Good times ahead :)

Demko is way too low.  WAAAAAAAAAAY.  He is playing in a real league, most of these kids are in kids leagues or European leagues. Demko is dominating the AHL on a crappy team.  He is top 10.

Only 5 goalies made the list in total so I’m pretty happy that he’s at least mentioned on here. All the other goalies are younger which is probably why they are ranked higher. More potential and stuff. 

 

Personally, I rank Demko as the 2nd best Canucks prospect

Demko not getting enough respect around the NHL.  He is going to surprise many (excluding Vancouver fans) how good he really is.

 

Of the whole list, Nashville got a steal in Eeli Tolvanen at 30th overall last draft.
