Following up on what DownieFaceSoftener said, I think they should hire more scouts. One league scout watching a player 10-15 times is not a huge repository of knowledge, and it seems like it could be improved by spending money on more scouts.
Dont even know how to look this up but I would bet the Flyers scouting payroll/# of scouts is probably up there towards the top of the league? Or would I be way off thinking that?
