Anyone have any insight on that. It's slightly off topic but does relate to Omark and others like him whom I assume are obviously trying to be "noticed" and win future NHL jobs.
Tough to say, even if scouts were cut back which I kinda doubt it's that massive of a cut, you have to remember that there is now other scouts that you never really had in the past that are on payroll that you can send. This is your GM, Assistant Gm, Head Coach, Assistant Coaches etc...
