Its rookies and mostly young guys. Get an early look to see who they want to invite to training camp etc. Its probably going to be Matteau's and the rest of the draftees first time on Devils ice in a practice setting.

New Puck Daddy on Semin: http://sports.yahoo....27442--nhl.html

Alex Semin has been subject to a very thorough character assassination. For quite some time now, the Russian sniper has been the poster child for "The problem with Russians", as seen by those in the NHL hockey media that have a problem with Russians...

Now, as long as Semin doesn't speak enough English to defend himself in the language or, at the very least, stop being seen as the other, he's going to be somewhat maligned. But, eight days into free agency, I'd say the silence is speaking in his favour. I think it might be time to rethink the whole "he doesn't want to be here" angle.

About Development canp, are people able to go there and watch? Or is it like a regular LL thing, and not open to the public? I was thinking about meeting some of the future Devils.

This is annoying. There's virtually nothing out there on Semin. The only stuff halfway believable is that the Canes and Wings are in on him along with the KHL. All the Semin/NJ just is pure rumor. There's nothing to suggest the Devils have even approached Semin.

There is zero legitimate speculation. With the Kovy thing there was at least tiny slivers here and there.

there was news when he first came here cause it was a trade, and the only reason there was news when he was a free agent was cause it was a player we were trying to re-sign so the interest in bringing him back was already known. When it comes to players we pick up out of free agency for the first time there is rarely any news before it becomes official

That took me 5 reads to understand what the hell you were talking about.

There is zero legitimate speculation about any team in the hunt for Semin. We got a lot of info on Kovy from the other side since LA was going after him so hard. His agent is clearly playing this one very close to the vest.

Id say no news is just no news. We don't even know if the Devils made an offer.

No you can't go to camp, devils camps are closed secret little boxes they don't like to share in case fans enjoy seeing the dev players.

You can watch from the outside of the practice rink, although you might have to press your face up against the window.

It's little things like this that I hope change once Lou retires.

Why not let fans in? Show the young kids some support? What harm could it do? You'd have maybe 1000 people tops turn out

They'd have to hire security, and the development camp is about impressing the coaches, not about showing off for fans. I do agree that it would be nice if the Devils would do this, but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't change when Lou leaves.
