- kids with WHL upside / desire

You don't watch the game you watch the 1,2,3,4 players in the game that fit in your category.
Compile scouting info on the players in your focus group. Cross reference them and your reports vs players in the same focus in the other leagues that you are not viewing.
Talk to scouts in attendance....voice your thoughts, ask for their feedback etc.
After you have done this for a few seasons and you are comfortable in what you are doing you can then:
Package your data in a professional format and send it to the heads of your target WHL GM's, NHL GM's/Director of Amateur Scouting, NCAA schools-hockey recruitment, ECHL / CHL clubs etc.
Where would you find the scouts in attendance to talk to? Just out of curiosity. I imagine it depends on the arena.
