Friedman: Golisano’s Scouting Cuts Hurt Buffalo’s Chances

From Elliotte Friedman at CBC.ca:

While researching how different organizations approached scouting, several other teams ripped Buffalo’s approach. At the time, Golisano considered that self-serving, because those people stood to lose their jobs if “The Sabre Way” caught on. But, what interested me most was a common thread throughout many of those conversations. It went like this: “I’ll explain to you why video scouting is a bad idea. But, I’m not going to rip Darcy because he’s at the mercy of his owner.”

Video- HNIC Hotstove Talk & More

A bunch of quick hit topics discussed, well worth a watch if you missed it tonight.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

With Nabokov joining Marek Svatos and Kyle Wellwood as players claimed away from teams who did the work to sign them, some clubs are wondering whether Section 13.23 of the CBA needs revisiting. Blues GM Doug Armstrong told ESPN.com on Saturday he’s going to table a discussion at the GMs meeting in March to ask that very question. The purpose of the rule is to prevent teams from adding “ringers” late in the season and gaining an unfair advantage.
