Didn't Columbus also fire their scouting department right after the draft?
The Jackets didn't renew the contracts of their scouts following the draft. Their contracts expired a few days after the draft, so this got tweeted as the Jackets "fired" their scouts immediately following the draft.

Gonna see this a lot. But if the organization had decided it's time to move on from a franchise player, it's best to let the GM trade him before you do the firing. Why? So trading the franchise player doesn't taint the new guy.
