Absolutely, I give a lot of credit to the scouts. However he is getting feedback from about 6 scouts, who each like a couple different guys. A good GM has to dissemnate all of this information and then pick the guy he thinks has the brightet future/biggest upside. Our Russian scout may like a European, Inge may like someone else, and then the North American guys might prefer someone else. Clarke gets ripped for making the bad picks or bad trades, though that is based on feedback from his scouts, also. So I'm just giving him credit for going with guys who at the moment seem like the right picks.
