It's that time of year

Let me preface what I'm about to say with this: It could be meaningless.

Nonetheless, there's an inordinate amount of pro scouts accredited for Tuesday night's Habs game against the Canucks.

Scouts from Vancouver, St. Louis, the Islanders, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Florida, Columbus, Los Angeles, Colorado, Washington, San Jose, Ottawa, Detroit and Dallas are all expected to take in the game. For comparison's sake, there's usually about five or six scouts at every game, so having 14 accreditations is unusual.

Some of them can be explained, such as San Jose and Philadelphia seeing as they are the Habs next two opponents, and obviously Vancouver since as they're playing tonight.

But with two potential trade deadline buyers facing off here, seeing scouts from potential sellers like St. Louis, Atlanta, the Islanders, Los Angeles, Colorado, Ottawa and maybe even Columbus is definitely interesting.

But then again, it could mean absoultely nothing. Take it for what it's worth.
