Yes they may be there to look at the young "jedi" Sprong, but you have to remember that there are 8 rounds where 15 year-olds can be taken now at the Q draft. This requires a better scouting job. So, scouts can no longer just go to the 2 or 3 midget espoir tournaments to scout the espoir kids. They have to grind it out at espoir games.
panning for gold.
