2015-16 Training Camp Thread

18 September 2015 - 11:33 AM

We need a fresh thread for training camp. 


Of course Patrik is nursing an knee injury to start camp. Hopefully it doesn't linger. 


I'm liking the initial d-pairs today:






We have a lot of borderline guys for that 8th spot/injury call ups from Mozik, Grabarenko (easier to spell that his anglo-name), Gragani, Helgeson and others.

If Elias was around - I'd assume he'd be with Henrique and Palmeri. 


Tlusty skated with Camm and Travis today.

I mean, I couldn’t chalk this up to a few bad workouts. I’d go to make a pass and the puck wouldn’t even be on my stick. This was serious. My depth perception was totally off. It was an embarrassing blow to my confidence. I worried that I was letting my teammates down. Now the fear was starting to creep in. Maybe I lost more than just a step…
