Dude caught a lot of unnecessary flak...but every once in a while it was deserved...especially when a prospect would make him "cream his pants" (not sure if he comprehended the meaning of the phrase back then).

Haha, if I remember correctly, I think it was DaDa that used to give him the business.... well at least the most. It's funny, just mentioned him the other day and then this thread.

Congratulations Max!!!

Yeah, I miss Max. He was often a great source for a realistic look at prospects. Then he got his scouting job and had to mostly leave this behind. I hadn't realized he had moved up to that level before. Good for him!

Update on Sharkie.

He's now an Amateur Scout for the Thrashers. Errr, Jets.

Will he come back and post Sharks related stuff?!

....he's not yet listed on their website and his twitter still says he has that Chicago job still. But, he did say "thank you everyone" yesterday on there, maybe everything else hasn't been updated yet.

Hell yeah! Don't remember him ever being an unnecessary d-bag. He was very well liked and respected by most of the people here.

Request from the mods:

Can we post a topic like this on the main prospect's board? It has to be exceptionally rare for a former poster to become an NHL scout. There certainly must be people on this site who remember Max.

I'm not in control over there but I do not see why not. As you said, it relates to the boards as a whole. Pretty cool if you ask me.
