Ted Black confirms: Darcy doubled number of scouts

Wasn't sure where to put this. I remember a thread about it but couldn't find it.

On his Thursday morning show on WGR, Ted Black mentioned that Darcy has doubled his staff of scouts from 11 to 20, 21 or 22 (Ted wasn't sure on the number).

Just checked sabres.com and none of the new scouts is listed. I don't remember any media coverage of this story. Must be the Sabres like to keep these things quiet, kind of like Kevin Devine being promoted to assistant GM.

On an unrelated note, while looking at sabres.com, I noticed that Dan DiPofi is no longer listed as an advisor. He's in the printed media guide.

Wow, I had already forgotten (I heard it on Thursday too).

Not sure why they don't list those scouts. Maybe they're only part time?

Unfortunately, without a site update or news article, what Ted Black said still doesn't tell us if Bo Berglund is the only European scout for the Sabres.

Could be contractors, not technically direct Sabres employees. That might make certain employment related business easier to conduct.

That's a very good point, I hope they have increased the number of Euro scouts.

He's repeated this like 3 times on his radio show the past few months.

11 to 20 or 21 is NOT doubling! Ted's a liar! This regime sucks!




Okay, to add a serious comment to this thread, as Ace says, I find it shocked if he hadn't brought this up before considering that was one of the keystones of Pegula's opening speech.

Do you mean the PDF on the Sabres' website? I thought they stopped printing hard copies of the media guide a few years back - something I was unhappy about and campaigned Black via the Message Box a few times to reconsider a return to.

Yes, the PDF. Sorry for the confusion and perhaps getting your hopes up.
