Here is the most recent TSN report from today.

Burke just added 7 new additional amateur scouts today also to address the weak draft results of the previous group.

Now it will be interesting to see if these new scouts are in addition to or now some of the former will be heading out the door.

In regards to your point here above .. If a team just doubled its amateur scouting staff, does that lead one to believe an offer sheet is coming that would trade away most of those high picks for next season?

Yup, Burke clearly is keeping Ferguson's scouting exactly the same because it was so awesome.
I thought Burke was content with our scouting staff since he kept the previous regime around?

What we're seeing is Burke phasing out the remaining few from the previous regime.

It's funny how agendas can get in the way of clear thinking, if clear thinking was possible in the first place that is.

All Burke is doing is checking off the list of things that people said should have been done since the lockout, i.e. spend money on the front office that can't be spent during the cap.

New training faciility: check
All star front office: check
Best goalie coach in the league: check
Largest scouting staff in the league: check.

Those two gents were hired as pro scouts, not as amateur scouts. There is a very real difference between those jobs.
