Is Leon Draisaitl better than Auston Matthews? Craig Button sure seems to think so.
Craig Button has been around the NHL for quite a long time and has seen a lot of very talented players come through the league. He spent time as Director of Scouting and Director of Player Personnel with the Dallas Stars before making the switch to the Calgary Flames, where he became Vice President and General Manager. Following his stint in Calgary, Button became a scout for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He now serves as the Director of Scouting and as an Analyst for TSN.
Button appeared on TSN1050's "Overdrive" on Monday to discuss a few topics, including Edmonton and Buffalo's chances at making the playoffs, where Draisaitl ranks among the game's top players, and who he would choose between Draisaitl and Auston Matthews.
