Man, has our scouting/talent evaluation improved by a factor of 1000 during the past several years!

Jacobs, Chia and Co. deserve an unbelievable amount of credit for restoring this franchise to where it should be.
I`m thoroughly convinced that the "scouting" staff was basically a couple of guys who sat around, watched a few highlights of Junior/NCAA/European games and made their evaluations and decisions that way.

It had to be, cuz there is no other explanation for the baffling picks this organization made for many years.

Every team makes draft mistakes, some prospects for a wide variety of reasons just can`t make the jump to pro, I`m almost more impressed at those small aquisitions/trades in which Chia has snagged guys like a Quaider/Boychuk, how about receiving Soupy in the Wideman and Horton package too??? Not sure many here (well I didn`t that`s for sure) anticipated how well he`d fit into a Bruins system.
