    Gents,

    I'll be away starting this Saturday, the 14th, through the 30th. My scouts (wife and 5 year-old daughter) tell me that there are some gems in Iceland, Denmark, and Norway that aren't getting their just due, so we're going to go investigate first-hand.

    Will probably stay away from Sweden this time. Word is that the Tampa GM has that market cornered. ;)

    I'll be checking email from time to time, but Brock's in charge of the ship while I'm gone. As far as the draft goes, we're still on for 10 AM the Saturday before the NHL Draft.

    It's amazing, but 7-8 years ago, the words "scouting trip" and "Denmark" in the same sentence was a bit of a joke. Now, that country's actually starting to produce some players. All good for the growth of the game.

    Bring money to Norway, it's expensive.

    Go to a hot bath in Iceland. It's rumored to be good.

    More top end talent coming out of Denmark (Eller, Boedker, Jensen as first rounders) recently than Slovakia, maybe even the Czech Republic. Only Voracek since 2007 for either of those I believe, maybe Jurco or Jaskin sneak in this year. Switzerland is doing better too.

    Enjoy your trip Matt, those are three countries I have never been to but certainly hope to visit someday, particularly Denmark. Norway likes its cross-country skiing too much and I'm having trouble getting over my childhood hatred for Gunner Stahl.

    Have a great vacation in my area. Let me know if you need help with anything or ideas for you vacation. Also let me know if you stop by here in Sweden since I could easily fly down to Stockholm and have a lunch and talk hfnhl contracts :)

    Must be nice working for SAS!

    Don't think we'll be making it up to Stockholm this time. Might check out the area around Karlskrona and Vaxjo, but that's only if I decide to swallow the small fortune they charge to cross the Oresund Bridge. ;)
