There was a while when i would bash Sather for inviting guys like Nedved and Eriksson to camp. It used to bother me that they were there, simply because of the past, their reputation or the idea they could beat out a roster player or youngen for a spot. But now i see it a lot differently. The more the better I say. Whether its in camp or on the roster as a vet. As long as you can fit them in and still allow the rookies to slide up and down from the AHL its only a good thing. You gotta earn a job. Creating good problems breeds good results.
the best part is, we have a coach who will judge it fairly...if a kid beats out a vet, the kid is playing, period.
