But it turns out that Gauthier was just replacing them with other scouts, one of them was Ryan Jankowski

We spent like 1 season with half a scouting department, including only one (maybe two, I forget) pro scout, since Gauthier insisted on doing most of the grunt work.

He probably ended up hiring more guys due to internal pressure or because he saw it wasn't working out.
