There are two games remaining for the Calgary Flames before the 2015-16 trade deadline on Monday (at 1 p.m. MT).
Trade rumours are running rampant. So in the interest of providing a bit of insight into what may happen between now and the deadline – and to throw gasoline on some of those rumours – here’s the list of teams (and notable individuals) scouting tonight’s game between the Flames and the New York Islanders.
Just because somebody’s on the scouting list
doesn’t mean they were there (travel plans often change), and often
teams scout other pro games to get background on future free agents.
Regardless, here’s who was slated to be at the ‘Dome for this evening’s
In attendance tonight are representatives from Detroit, Minnesota, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Winnipeg.
In a bit of a contrast with previous recent games, there’s really nobody with a fancy title scouting tonight’s game. (In previous games we’ve seen general managers, directors of pro scouting and assistant general managers.)
Heck, Pittsburgh’s representative is listed as an amateur scout on their website, so presumably he’s just doing some cross-checking or hanging around the ‘Dome waiting for tomorrow’s Hitmen game.
