I’m glad Maloney let go of scouts Badali, Henry, Lindstrom, & Slansky shortly after the recent draft.
I have not been impressed with the late round European draft picks we got from 2000 to 2005 draft (eg. Kouba, Pestunov, Blindenbacher, Lindstrom, Beat Forster, Tomanek, etc.) We have not found any gems.
Hanzal & Lisin are high draft picks which most scouts are aware of. I'm not high on Latal either.
I like the 2006 & 2007 draft choice of Ruzicka, Goncharov, Ahnelov, Gistedt.
Coyotes don't have a scout in Finland? They have not drafted any players from Finland since Vaananan in 1998.
Maloney knows the scouting community very well & he will hire more amateur scouts for us.
Barry Trapp is the most recent hire. I like to have more good scouts for the OHL & Quebec league & USHL.
