I have to say, there has been a MAJOR improvement in the Habs' pro scouting since the days of Ribiero for Niniimaa. Dustin Boyd notwitstanding, they've brought in Halperin and Picard this year, Gill, Gionta, Moen, Gomez (I know he's been awful, but his playoffs were excellent and he's not dragging down the team in his slump, to his credit.) Eller's starting to show how valuable an asset he might turn out to be. The hit ratio is pretty darn good.
I know they aren't prospects but you mentioned Halpern. I also mention Metropolit, Moore. They might not be on our team and one of them isn't even in the NHL, but when they played for us they played well.
Is it the scouting? Is it the General manager? Or is it that finally we have a coaching staff that knows how to bring the best out of players, or at least certain types of players. (The talented kind)
