It is extremely normal for scouts to attend games. Either a pro-scout to gather information on the style of the team or some particular players.

There is no direct link between scouts attending a game and trade in works

Bonk is a left-handed, i doubt it... Peca would be nice, but for what??? And Scatchard? Oh, you maybe got it... According to TSN, he's a right-handed center who has great size (6-2, 224) and very strong defensive instincts. He's a tough center to line up against. Can also play right wing effectively. And he should not be too expensive... but why the Islanders would shop him to the Habs?

Why? Cause Mike Milbury is their GM.

Could just be pro scouts doing their jobs, i.e., scouting pros.

Yes, scouting games is normal, but 6 scouts/staff members is a little excessive for just "gathering information on a team", is it not?

The game was played at Ottawa right? Thats pretty close to Montreal? That would explain high number of scouting there. And could it be they're just scouting Isles for tactics and not for player evaluation for trade. Islanders are one of the teams Habs need to beat for those 7th/8th spots - one of the chief reasons Canadiens didnt make it last season were two losses to that team.

you could scout for team tactics on video, 6 makes you really think.
when theres that many there obviously looking for individual players on the ice. who those players are? id like to know.
scatchard and peca looks to be the type of players gainey would like more solid information on.
6 scouts wouldnt be at that game for nothing.

Why settle for a video, when you can pack your scouting team on a minibus and drive there and back in couple hours, seeing game live?

The Pro Scouting team has two main roles: scouting teams for upcoming games, etc and scouting individual players to build a database of players for possible trades or discussions with other teams.

It is normal to see a contingent of scouts when two key teams from your conference are playing 2 hours down the road. To win anything in the East and to survive the tough NE division, the Habs will have to face the Sens at least a few more times this season. The NYI are amongst a bunch of teams in that group all fighting for the last two spots in the East, so we want to be able to win those key "4 point" games against them this season.

Finally, trades don't just happen without lots of pre-scouting. This information has to be gathered over time, and this is just part of normal business. Scouting teams don't just start checking out a player moments before a trade is about to be pulled off, although they will do their final assessments of a player, especially if they haven't seen that player in a while.

They stated during the RDS braodcast of the Ottawa-NYI game that the Habs' entire scouting team was having their annual meeting at the Lemay Lake Casino in Gatineau, which is just a skip and a jump from the Corel center. That's why there were so many of them at the game... Nothing to serious here.
