What did he say that he held back besides giving the list? Saying things like more scouts is better isn't exactly rocket science.

I agree with you but I think Timmins knows by now it's more of a "what do you say to all the people who think this" more so than "im questioning your ability to run a scouting team".

I rewatched that part. He says "Marc says he wants more players and scouting from Quebec, do you agree with that?"

It's pretty tame. Timmins kind of looked like "oh here we go" but seemed more amused by it than angry.

I find the interviewer stupid to say: "Hey everybody in the world, here's Timmins' secret card.. he's from Finnish and his name is"..

I thought I heard him mention the fact that guys like Grigorenko & Teravainen are possibilities when Timmins surely didn't actually come out and say that. I noticed Timmins sort of smiled (or maybe an eye roll?) when Leroux mentioned Teravainen when he was doing the translation.

- Also, Timmins seemed a little annoyed when Leroux brought up the french question at the end, and with good reason in my personal opinion.

But I may be just looking into it too much.
I think he wanted to call Leroux an idiot after he mentioned Teravainen as a "hidden gem". This kid is a consensus Top 10 pick, there's nothing hidden about him. How can you draft a sleeper in the Top 3?
