Two Flyers' scouts at the San Jose-Columbus game (February 11, 2013)

A total of 19 scouts at nationwide arena and two from the flyers. This could be nothing but seems strange for so many scouts to be at the same one game. What could possibly be reason for us to be attending that game with two scouts?

Discuss/opinions

Obviously, it isn't advance scouting (no West games this season).

Maybe we're looking to somehow rob them again.

Honestly, how things have been, that's very likely.

Umberger has a pricey contract:

http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/69...ract-extension

Quote:
Columbus Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger has signed a five-year contract extension that will keep him with the club through the 2016-17 season.

The deal is worth $23 million, with an average of $4.6 million annually, a source told ESPN.com.


"We have signed RJ to a 5 year extension," Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson tweeted Wednesday morning. "Thrilled to have such a big part of our team signed long term."

There is rumors out there that the Sharks are looking for another winger.

Just don't see the Sharks moving a valuable piece considering the way they have been playing (up until tonight). Douglas Murray is redundant with Schenn and Grossmann. And besides do you think they would send 2 scouts just for him? Brent Burns would be nice but they gave up a lot for him and hes on a nice long term deal. Its gotta be JJ. He's been linked for way too long. I think he would be a great fit.

Who says we're the ones looking for the big piece?

Of course these "x scouts are at this game" never seem to correlate to a deal. Its always fun speculating though.

A team like Columbus isn't going to just trade prospects for prospects. They would have to be included in a deal and it would probably be part of a big deal on the Flyers end.
