This story is bogus. There are 2 reasons.
1. Why would he leave as the Ducks GM to become a scout. That makes absolutely zero sense. Not to mention GM's make a lot more than scouts, and the Sabres are notoriously cheap and are cutting back on scouting costs and letting scouts go. They recently let a bunch of scouts go and turned to video scouting"
2. He left Anaheim because of family and travel. Scouts travel far more than GM's do, so he'd be leaving a spot due to lack of time to spend with family to take a role that is more time intensive. Makes no sense.
That's just 2 reasons why this wont happen. There is also the fact that he said he wanted to go somewhere where hockey mattered. Not to mention his wife is Canadian and looking for work, but can only work in Canada.
This source has zero credibility.
