What has Sather said? Sather hardly ever says anything. Don't you know that?

I do have a good deal of trust in what Clark says. As a chief NHL scout he is above average. I also have read many of Beacon's reports on AHL game days. His assessments seem both analytical and reliable. He doesn't seem to have the tendency to paint pretty pictures when he doesn't see them. Beyond that what do you want? You're no more of an expert on this than just about anyone else here. There are things that I do take as reliable--that a big defenseman who skates well for instance and is good positionally is eventually going to get a shot--add in other factors and it enhances a more positive view.

I wonder if you ask such questions about Nathan MacKinnon or Seth Jones? Odds are on their sides that they're going to be excellent players--you know that right?
