Didn't hear all but he touched on St. Johns and mentioned Telegin and Burmistrov , Redmond and Melchiori. Hopefully we can get a link to the radio segment?

I am sure other teams are being proactive , but others are not as adamant as Winnipeg is , and for a draft where we have 6 piks in the top three rounds , this can only be a significant positive imo.
This is interesting, the Jets have avoided the QMJHL in the past two drafts(I don't even think the Jets have a dedicated Q scout, unlike the W and O where they do, IIRC), and even ATL avoided the QMJHL ever since the Alex Bourret disaster (down TWICE past Anze Kopitar and Marc Staal, although got Ondrej Pavelec in the 2nd trade down). The QMJHL looks like it's going to have it's strongest draft in a long long long time this year, so it's the perfect year to have an extra pair of eyes over there.
