Lets put it this way most all of the teams have far less scouts than the Leafs and still find more nhl prospects than we do.


I think Philly does the best job, they seem to get more high end propects father down the 1st rd than any body, their weakness has been goaltenders if they had ever found one they would have been a dynasty. Their trades have been top notch and that takes scouts to evaluate other teams players. Can't argue that the Bruins and Capitals have done well, the Rangers have improved after a few rocky years, and of course the Wings drafting late have always found talent, ex Sproul vs Percy, and their Swedish connections have been stellar. Carolina has done well lately, obviously San Jose and L.A have done well. Pittsburg has been very effective they've found some good players other than the high end guys, Letang and others come to mind, Gogloski for Neal and they have some good young prospects in the system. I'm sorry to say that almost all the teams have done better in the Draft than we have and untill that improves were just going to continue to keep blowing in the wind.
