Regardless of wether it's a pro or amateur league, amateur scouting means scouting for the draft and undrafted free agents. Collberg and others were drafted from Swedinsh pro leagues, Emelin too. Nygren also. That's Timmins and his staff.

PRO scouting is NHL, scouting other teams before games(style, systems and tendencies) and players(for trade or FA).
