As you all know, I have no problem adding scouts in the Q. It's obviously fine enough for me. And while there are no classes to be taken and since I also believe a whole lot of people can do the job.....I would love, it's not over, to see professionnal scouts be appointed. Would be great to see guys like Chainey, Nolet or those guys be hired. Especially Nolet. I know we had one before in Michel Boucher I wasn't too fond of, but others could have been more helpful.

Yet, like somebody said, the more the merrier.

I'll always remember him for that dive trying to stop a breakaway and his wrist got run over by the player in question and he just started bleeding like crazy.

Very glad to see us adding to our home-province scouting. It's clear Bergevin has a soft spot for ex-players like himself, which isn't necessarily a good thing or a bad thing. This is the kind of hiring that will reveal how good Bergevin's evaluation of staff, not just players, is. I, of course, hope Audette turns out to be a stud for us. Wouldn't it be great if the next Claude Giroux didn't slip through our fingers?

IIRC Gauthier canned a bunch of scouts in favour of 'video scouting'

Former Bruins broadcaster? We'll see how he does.

I do like that Bergy is reversing PG's idiotic downsizing of the scouting department as if Montreal needed to cut costs.

Still, I wish we were able to woo Nolet away from Philly.

I'm not sure if that's the same guy, I dont remember him being a broadcaster.

The guy they signed was playing in Switzerland last year.

He did play a season with the Bruins though.

Mowers? He retired from Hockey in 2011 and spent last year working for NESN. I watched him a couple of times. I can't say he really impressed me, but he wasn't terrible.

Fair enough, thanks for the info.

Didn't know he worked for NESN.

Was Audette coaching somewhere? For some reason I thought I read he was (not at a high level) but I could easily be mistaken and don't feel like looking it up since i'm at work and actually sort of busy.

Anything to keep him off the air.

Very happy about this hiring, if only because I really like that Bergevin understands the importance of having a lot of scouting personel. This is where being a rich team makes a difference.
