When Tie played for the Jets - he and Zinger were basically joined at the hip, I'm talking best friend territory. Carlyle & Domi practically spent all of their free time in Zinger's trainers'/equipment room when they played for the Jets. I also recall in October when Barrie played against London and it was announced for all to hear that the Jets had eight scouts in the building watching Scheifele. That makes no sense; they didn't need eight guys to watch a guy they've already drafted... they were there to watch Domi! Plus, drafting Domi carries on the team trend of drafting guys with NHL familial lineage.

He is also second in scoring for draft eligible players in the OHL last I checked.

Just a wild guess.
I can see even without the Tie history, Max is very much a TNSE type player and likely.... He has character, scoring, grit and blood lines... very TNSE.

But about the Jets scouts thing, they've had a caravan of TNSE crew visit each one of the current prospects games. They saw Lowry/Sutter play each other when Lowry scored 4 pts, Kosmachuk when he broke his scoring drought with a 3pt night, and Trouba's first game.
