And I guess if there was going to be a lockout, the timing is good for us. Scheifele with another year in junior and Burmi down in St. John's. I'm bummed beyond belief but I'm glad there's a bright side.
Plus as I have been mentioning , it is the best scenario for amateur scouting with the extra picks we have and the quality and depth of this draft.

Having coaches from the team like Huddy and Vincent able to scout their area ( expertise and locale ) plus having Cheveldayoff see so many more players more often in person is a huge positive imo.

Big year for draft picks , big year for talent , big year for depth , management and coaches not involved in day to day NHL activities , it really is working in favour in that regard for Winnipeg.
