We have not brought any true diamonds in the rough as a result of pro scouting...but that doesn't necessarily mean they haven't identified anyone. But, who knows.
Agreed, there is all kinds of information about players today & scouts watch these guys a lot before decisons are made. I think you have to get lucky with some players that they just happen to blosom in your system or they come of age just at the time you trade for them. I wanted to trade for Moulson when he was with LA before becoming a scorer with the NYI. I also see a player like Billy Sweat that way if we could have gotten him from LA or now from Vancouver.
