28 scouts executives at the leaf/oiler game tonight

Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun



Can you tell the trade deadline is approaching? Try 28 scouts/executives from 22 NHL teams here for Oilers-Leafs game tonight at ACC


I know there could be more from one team--but looks like we got a full house tonight in TO

I'd suspect this 3 game eastern road trip will be fairly busy for scouts scouting the Oil.

I wouldn't read too much into it ... there are only 3 games on the schedule and the Leafs game is the only one in the east, so it's either Toronto, Phoenix, or Anaheim for the pro scouts/executives.

For that many scouts to be at this game there has to be big enough players being dangled to get this much interest. It's not to see sutton or komisarek.

To watch one of the most rumoured buyers and one of the sellers rumoured to be most active. That leaves some room for speculation.

Renney is not helping Tambellini showcase Sutton much if Oiler's management have plans of dealing him. Sutton is scratched tonight in place of Tom Gilbert.

This is the most scouts we have had at a game all year. Why sit Sutton? Unless we are showcasing gilbert.....

Well, the Oil look to be sellers and Burke may be the most active GM in terms of discussing trades in the league. Not surprising that this game has a lot of scouts, but 22 teams! That's pretty impressive.

People know what Sutton can do. He could very well be included in a deal that is being finalized so the team he is going to wants him out. Not likely but Sutton is not a player that scouts need to watch a ton of.

Bob McKenzie just said on TSN that there is "nothing going on with the Leafs" and that there is a good chance they will stand pat at the deadline, so you've gotta think most of those scouts are watching the Oilers.

It was the only way executives could get tickets to watch the Great One tonight... say they are "scouting" him.

Smid or Whitney would be good fits on the St. Louis blueline.

I think thats BS, frankly. Leafs have a log jam at defense, with Mike "Alternate Captain" Komisarek currently occupying the press box. Burke will move someone off the blue line.
