Similarily guys have been hired as scouts or whatever after long, fruitful careers - or even short-lived ones - to work for a club even though they weren't as qualified as some.
There are actual career sites that I remember checking out when I graduated last year that told you of ways to get into scouting. I wish I could remember the link because I'm sure that would be a tremendous help to you...
That can't be more truthful.....Trent McLeary has a job as a Habs scout.....Got injured badly, so they get him a job......It's a nice gesture and all but it shows you what they really think about a scouting job....
