I'm not saying I want to hit it big. I have an uncle who's a sports agent for some olympic athletes. He went to McGill with Mike Babcock. Even something small like that. Wait a second.. I think I just found my contact..

I can't believe yet another thread got derailed into the Fischer pick debate. any chance this could be locked? Lots of folks could take things out of context given those quotes from me that people insist on bringing up again. Really thought this thread was buried.

We don't need to keep rehashing who's to blame for the Fischer pick, there was no one person responsible for that pick, several people on the organization saw Fischer and it was decided to draft him after trading down. For the only time in Timmins' tenure with a team the top picks didn't pan out, not coincidentally on what is regarded today as a very poor draft year.

Folks on here figured out years ago that Westrum had been the guy who had coached him before and liked him (he is after all the Western US scout), but it's not like a regional scout gets all the say on a player...as I said the last time, and every time this gets brought up...it was a team decision. Trevor's crossover scouts would have seen Fischer too.

Funny - over the last decade Dave Conte and Jim Nill have missed more first rounders than the Habs...every team has missed on at least one first rounder...but Hab fans are the only ones who can't get over it..and dwell on it. Seriously..just like Shatner said to Trekkie fans..."Get a life!"

Sorry Grant.

It's just these myths constantly get brought up as though the GM is some sort of Tyrant and you really are the only one with credibility to shut them down. I mean these myths got taken so out of hand that Brian Wilde who's a respected member of the Montreal media went on Tsn 990 (Habs radio) to say that it was Gauthier who really liked Fischer and pushed hard for him. It's just wrong information that gets spewed out to god knows how many habs fans who just mindless eat that crap and regurgitate it.

I promise I'll try not to bring it up again.

Damn, young lucky boy. (If it's true but I assume you're not lying, you're old enough).

I wonder what is more difficult: becoming a scout or sports agent. It sucks because these jobs are all about WHO you know and not about WHAT you know.

It's actually rare when that isn't the case with any job with varying degrees.

So Timmins started out with the Sens? I guess they're our managerial farm team. Time to switch to the Hawks. Step one already in place.

Wasn't there a guy who had a hockey stats blog who got a scouting job somewhere ?

Habs fans are still complaining about the Kostitsyn pick, and sometimes some complain about the Roy trade.
