You're also expecting too much the Spits are down to 5 current scouts as opposed to the days when they had 10 scouts and drafting real good players. With fewer scouts you see fewer games, fewer prospects so your expectations are far too high. This organization is cutting corners now and what you see is reflected with the on ice performance the past 2 years.
Good point re the scout situation. The more eyes you have out there, the better chance of getting value.

Hopefully they have a lot of contacts out there willing to help out, who are not on the payroll Not the time to be cutting the scouting dept but maybe the financials arent in good shape. Obviously they felt they had to trim the staff. A few good years and some PO gates should help
