Questions about Ottawa Scouting

In a thread on the Edmonton board, we're discussing the differences between some clubs in terms of scouting Europeans.

iirc, the Sens have had their last 2 directors of personnel European based (Kekalainen and then Hedberg). Is this correct?

I also recall that Frank Jay and Trevor Timmons are very much involved in all aspects (including European players). Is this also correct?

One of our fine posters on the Oiler board (dawgbone) asked if the Sens track their previous picks closely. This question came up in regard to the Oilers being unaware that Alexei Mikhnov couldn't see well and that Misha Joukov had an injury about which the organization was unaware for some time due to language barrier and not sending a scout into that area.

Is this something the Senators monitor more closely iyo? Do they keep better tabs than that on their European selections?

Thanks in advance.
