We have too much money to be cutting corners on the size of our scouting staff (leaving areas under scouted or not scouted at all). Too much money to have a valuable asset like Timmins diffusing the amount of time he has to three separate responsibilities that could be handled by another highly regarded staff member.
Gauthier cut the scouting staff. Didnt hire much in the way of staff and seemed to cut corners in regards to spending money.
I agree with the scouting staff but I don't see how Timmins did any wrong. We could say he shouldn't have all those roles, but at same time, I think he was excellent at them anyway. I don't blame our poor player development on Timmins at all.
