what does the head of amateur scouting actually do?
I know Delorme is in charge of scouting the west. And admittedly drafting kids from the dub or other leagues has been subpar in spite of the Mason Raymond selection. However, our Q record has been just as dismal and drafting from the OHL has been quite poor as well. With Payne being hired last year and Marois being fired, these areas look to be addressed.
Gradin is lauded, as he should be, for his excellent European scouting.
Our US scouting isn't amazing but isn't terrible either.
But can anybody speak to examples of why Delorme makes for a poor head scout? And I don't mean "oh he sounds like an idiot in his interviews". I know he does. But with respect to actual job description, what makes Delorme so poor?
Is it the responsibility of the head scout to accrue information from the other scouts and rank based on what he feels are the best players?
