Unless draft prospects are lucky to get into the U-18 or go on a long playoff run, they are not going to have enough games to change many scouts opinions. The meat of the scouting season is essentially over.
At this point last year, Dallas scouts were already telling GM Joe that the draft was 50 players deep and he should try and add a 2nd. In every conversation after the Grossmann trade on 2/16 last year he mentioned the scouts opinion of the 2012 draft. Those same things have already probably been discussed this year.
