Wouldn't it be great if the next Claude Giroux didn't slip through our fingers?
While I agree with your sentiments, I thought you should note that Claude Giroux was born and raised in Hearst, Ontario and thus has nothing to do with pro-scouting in Quebec.
But regardless, more scouts can never be a bad thing! Glad to hear Bergevin is still working hard to make both the on-ice product and management team as effective as possible.
