Someone less lazy than me can probably find the list, it's been posted before on this site.

Still wish he would have turfed the entire western scouting crew.

At least the improvement in the scouting from Nonis to Gillis is obvious. Far more pro potential in the Gillis era.
Interesting. I was always under the impression that he actually had yet to fire anybody from the scouting staff - only adding Palango in Ontario. Though I do agree about the improvement when you compare the regimes. Amazing how well the Ontario region has done since we added one scout, although something may also be said for the supposed change in criteria when looking at potential draftees.
