GMs Turn To Scouting

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, 

So, what exactly does an NHL GM do while waiting out the lockout? 

"Right now, we’re all going to be glorified scouts to a degree," veteran Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland told ESPN.com Wednesday. 

"All you can really do at this point is go watch games and evaluate players." 

NHL GMs try to get to as many AHL, U.S. college or Canadian major junior games as they can during a normal NHL season, but the reality is that their day-to-day NHL responsibilities limit how much they can really do that.
