Dedicated goalie scout?  Or long term succession plan for Jim Corsi?  Or an assistant to work on-ice with Jim?

Benefits of Pegulabucks for sure, but I don't know what that role is.

Sounds like he'll move around within the system to coach Hackett, Makarov, Lieuwen, Knapp, etc. and report on potential prospects in his travels as well.

I guess if we have goalies in 3+ different places, it'd probably be handy.  Plus scouting.

Yep, Plenty of G prospects in the Sabres' pipeline between AHL, ECHL, NCAA, and Europe.

It's a typo. It's a roving girl scout cookie salesman. It's just another revenue stream.

What's wrong with that?  My son has a Celtic first name and an eastern European last name.  You don't suppose people from two different backgrounds might get married, do you?

Sabres add another scout to what is already a league high scouting department. Can't hurt i suppose.

Baseball teams have positions like this (not goalie coaches though)
Sal Fasano is the Jays roving catchers coach i believe. he travels through the different levels of the farm system and even works with the guys on the big club as an extra coach.

So basically this guy will travel through the Sabres different farm systems, working with all the goalies they have and also work as a scout while he is out there

Makes sense, since, theres a major probability that we'll have a goalie duo of Enroth/Hackett in Buffalo sooner then later. haha

I'm interested in seeing how he interacts with Corsi & Janosz.
