A lot of people most likely. While getting paid to watch and analyze hockey is my dream job there are aspects of scouting that many people would find difficult.

You're always on the road, very little time with your family. Also, some scouts get burnt out on trying to find holes in players' games. It becomes a pessimistic way to look at a sport they love for many of those guys.

Also, unless you're at the higher levels the pay is rarely enough to be a full time job.

GMs tasks are a bit different.
