Yesterday, Marc Bergevin continued his significant retooling of the the front office, extending Trevor Timmins contract and adding Donald Audette and Mark Mowers as scouts.
Clearly, scouting is a priority for Bergevin. Not only have five scouts been added this summer, but Martin Lapointe was hired to help relieve Timmins of some of his player development duties.
For all of the on-ice moves made this summer, it is perhaps these behind-the-scene changes that will have the longest lasting impact.
