In Time Machine on Tracking the Draft, former GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN Craig Button tells a story regarding a past player and the NHL Draft while relating it to a player in this year's draft prospect pool.

Show Notes

In Time Machine Craig is looking at a two time Stanley Cup champion who was a second round pick 9 years ago with a sharp shooting left winger from Finland. TSN's Director of Scouting sees some of Brandon Saad in Roby Jarventie when it comes to dependability and the ability to play with really skilled players. As for the 2021 look ahead we discussed defenceman Owen Power which produced a comparison to former Hart and Norris Trophy winner Chris Pronger. Power could challenge Aatu Raty for the top pick next year.
