Buffalo has a solid presence in the CHL, though another Maritime based scout would be interesting as the Maritimes seem to be a growing seat of offensive Canadian talent (see MacKinnon).

The other thing that might be in their best interest would be coordinating their pro and amateur guys since the way it has been explained to me, the pro guys are looking at the UFA talent coming out of amateur leagues (particularly the NCAA guys).

Terry did mention in the pre-game HNiC program that they will be adding more scouts as part of building the hockey department. How long that takes... ? *shrug*
Awesome post, thanks. Yeah I'm sure there's plenty of logistical issues with overseas hiring as well that they'll have to deal with.

Watch we come out of the draft with 2-3 Euro picks this year.
