Bottom line: we would not be peddling our opinions here if we were as good as the WORST NHL quality scouts. As much as we can play armchair quarterback (to mix sports metaphors) we have to hope the Preds scouts and management make the right call. As ticket holders/paying fans/spectators we only have so much stake in this compared to them (which is their mortgages, families support, future).

Does not make the waiting any easier, though...
