here's his linked in:

http://www.linkedin.com/in/philmyretalkshockey

Listed as a pro scout/goalie coach for Ottawa from 94-2004 and pro scout/goalie coach for Florida from 2005-2010.

More importantly, a motivational speaker with such enthralling topics as

• The Visionary Attitude: Building a Winning Team

• Hockey and Me: Growing through the NHL expansion

• Center Ice: Achieving Balance in Sports…and Life

• And The Walls Came Tumbling Down: Overcoming Adversity

• How to Coach a Winning Goalie

• Sports: A Hobby or Your Career?

Maybe he'll be good at spotting people who won't implode in Montreal. I'm looking at you, Ribeiro.

He was also a scout / goaltending coach for the Florida Panthers at one point according to wikipedia.

Probably. His linked in profile says he worked it from 2005-2010 and it seems somewhat extensive as a cv.

His CV also gives the impression that he is an exclusively N. American scout. Looking for recognizable names that he probably worked on in that period yields pretty much Kulikov and, depending on how much work he did in 2010 (his last year with the org), Erik Gudbranson, Nick Bjugstad, Quinton Howden and John McFarland.

If he worked more on trades, it's not a particularly pretty picture. Just looking over a few, trading Dominic Moore for a 2nd to the Habs and Seidenburg for Bitz in 2010 aren't particularly pretty. In 2007, Salei for Skrastins (RIP) and a 3rd isn't great, but Vokoun for a next year's first a second, and a conditional second seems pretty spot on. Of course this is totally speculative and unscientific. Just looking around at what I can drag up.

Hope he can help Timmins find a goalie to draft next summer.

I take it from this hire that we're going to start taking look at some young goalies. That appears to be Myre's area of focus, given he was coaching it at a pro level.

Still, a resume coaching goalies in Ottawa isn't all that encouraging. That franchise has been searching for goaltending pretty much since they came back into the league.

We finally have the goalie's pro scout Florida had when they traded Luongo!

Appreciate the research but let's be fair, an HF poster could have drafted those names

Being fair we really don't even know who he had a part of drafting anyways really. It's all speculation. But yeah... anyone could have drafted those guys.

Not surprising after last night's performance, the organisation had no choice but to move, and fast.

All I really hope is that he can successfully motivate our players to treat hockey as their career, not a hobby.

Agreed wholeheartedly. I only posted that to show that the guy hasn't exactly found any North American diamonds in the rough. Florida's draft record is pretty unremarkable, with only their high picks turning into anything useful, as far as I can tell. And useful on the Florida Panthers doesn't necessarily mean anything at all.

I sound like I'm being hard on the guy, but I don't mean to be. I don't know how scouts are really qualified anyway, except superstars like Hakan Andersson. I wish him the best of luck.

I believe this guy was rumored to be the new GK coach before Marcoux was hired

For all you know, he could have been against the picks Florida made and wanted to go in another direction.

I don't deny it. As I've said a few times now- completely unscientific, just breezing through things, I don't know how scouts are qualified as being better than one another unless they really find off the map guys time and time again ala Hakan Andersson. Any other caveats I should include?
