Well they didn't have a scouting staff because they didn't actually exist until right before the draft started. I think they took Scheifele's coaches word (Dale Hawerchuk, who was a great Jet) and selected him.

As for his performance I thought he did alright but the last two games the play really seemed to die on his stick. Not an easy adjustment to make going to the wing from center, especially on international ice. Really had a hard time staying on his feet though, kid was flailing all over the place.
