Who is our European scout anyway? Is this player on our scouting staff's radar or has he slipped by them unnoticed? These are the types of questions fans should be able to pose at annual forums/town hall meetings.

If the Jets held forums like that I'm sure we'd all be there to help give them advice from our vast knowledge

Seriously though, it would be good to know we have a presence paying attention to the talent coming from Sweden and not only taking notice after the Red Wings, Senators or some other team has the kid in their system.
I agree with AF1982, as of right now he looks like a 4th-5th round pick. Although if any teams are high on him I can see him going later in the 3rd. He's a guy that different scouting services have at very different places.

We actually have 3 European scouts.

Head European scout Evgeny Bogdanovich
Fredrik Jax
and late addition to the scouting team this year is Dean Fedorchuk
Plus I'm unsure of whether our director of amateur scouting, Marcel Comeau, ever takes scouting trips in Europe.

Edit: also my 1000th post, yaaaay!
