Every Thursday former NHL GM, Stanley Cup Champion and Director of Scouting with TSN, Craig Button and I explore prospects for the NHL Draft. From Top Shelf Talent to The Next Wave to Time Machine and more, the stars of tomorrow are discovered here.

Show Notes

In Top Shelf Talent on Tracking the Draft, former NHL GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN, Craig Button and Dean Millard discuss players who are projected to go in the first round, choosing from the Top 40 on the Craig's List. Quinton Byfield is the 3rd ranked player on the list and Craig described how big or small the gap is between Byfield and Stutzle. He also cautioned strongly against judging Byfield foley on his World Junior Championship tournament as you will be 'making a big mistake'. Byfield has man size and is very strong, tough to handle when standing still and even tougher when he gets a head of steam going. We also paid tribute to another Top Shelf Talent from the early 80s as Dale Hawerchuk lost his battle with cancer this week, a more humble superstar might be hard to find.
