So Johnson's there despite his legal troubles and Gavrus is there.  I am surprised Hraberenka isn't there, they just signed him to a contract.  Kinkaid's not there, but he's also not under contract.

Urbom was drafted in 2009 and has attended 4 of these, I believe after that point the team either doesn't invite a player or leaves it up to the player whether or not to attend.

Is the scrimmage that they have at the end of camp on tape delay or streamed live?

Such a great defensive group yet a disgusting forward group there. Not really complaining or blaming, just weird how those things work out.

Brylin is there again. I wonder if he's a lock to make the coaching staff

 

Hasn't he been there for years?

Yeah but now there's an open assistant spot. Would be great to have two quintessential Devils coaching our forwards and defense

Chere:

 

"Alex Urbom is not attending camp, GM Lou Lamoriello said, because the Devils did not ask several European players to attend"

 

...I am a little confused on why they did not ask them to attend, anyone with more insight?

Well in Urbom's case he's already been to a bunch just like the other Swedes. They'll all be in NHL camp so Lou is probably cool with them continuing to train at home rather than disrupt their schedule.

 

I think it's great that Artur Gavrus is there though.

No point bringing them to the US for 1 week when the Devils have already seen them for 3 or 4 years.

I'm really interested to see what the reporters impression of Myles Bell is in camp.  He has taken an odd path but his numbers are intriguing.

Urbom and the others are already pretty experienced with a few camps under their belt, relatively speaking compared to the new kids. The more players you make come from Europe, etc., the less time or attention you can give to some of the (much) younger kids that are just showing up the first time. Just a guess...

Am I the only one who thinks Urbom is getting phased out of the organization? No, him not getting invited doesn't factor in my opinion.

Phased out, I don't know. But it seems clear to me that the brass thinks more highly of Merrill and Gelinas in the short term. That's especially the case since Lou probably sees a need to get as much offense from wherever he can find it. Urbom doesn't fit that bill.

I think he is getting passed in the organization but still holds a little value in a trade. I wouldn't mind trading him for a similar forward prospect.
