For me it is hard to explain. Disclaimer, I am a Leaf fan and my experience with Button revolves around the Maple Leafs, so maybe your opinion of his is different. What I know is he was not the best GM (some would go as far to say terrible GM). Very early on in the season he was a big proponent of trading Nylander (before we really knew just how great this kid is. We all knew he had a lot of potential). He also believes Kapanen isn't a NHL player because he is too inconsistent. He has now said on record it "make sense" for Tavares to sign a 1yr deal in Toronto. I just want to point these things out. The weird thing is even with all of this I still believe he does a good job on air killing time. He has a lot of stories and a lot of trivia facts about hockey, just take his personal opinions with a grain of salt.
