Has any of these scout signing posts in this forum ever been any kind of indicator of anything? NHL teams scout each other. Ho hum.

I have an even better offer:

Voracek + Filatov

for

Goligoski + Bennett

Voila!

Hemsky and Voracek are the kinds of players who would excel with Crosby and Malkin. Neither Crosby nor Malkin are the classic, 'I pass, you shoot' center icemen. They are players who need players who share the puck to make give and go plays with.

Ray Shero seems to have a keen eye for defensemen and I have no doubt that they will never be short on prospects there, but I'll believe a trade like this when I see it. Shero has made exactly 1 trade for skill, Hossa.

Pens scouts at Florida game for the third time in their last four games. Could be targeting weiss or higgins.

Yeah I never get this. Its why you have pro-scouts and most times it doesn't mean anything at all.

LOL good point, though I would wager pro scouts watch a lot of tape and see guys in person much less frequently. I really have no idea. Only reason I say that is because in February you never hear reports of pro scouts visiting teams they'd never trade with. Anyone know for sure how it all works?

Anyways, I would like a good hockey trade involving Hemsky, Voracek, or slightly more realistically, Umberger.
