That's why you pay scouts to do their jobs. More than 90% of all players, regardless of size, don't turn out to be NHLers. It's not really an excuse. I don't buy that finding a player like Conacher is dumb luck, anymore than I do drafting someone like Yandle. A gamble? Sure, but an informed one. 80 pts, including 39 goals, in 75 games (his first full AHL year) is not exactly flying under the radar.
