I wouldn't count on Peca showing up or ZAR even being invited (wasn't impressed with him last year and it will cost Spott another 3 rd pick) but keep on hearing some rumblings that Bailey remains a strong possibility. The one player from the 2011 draft class that I was impressed with last year but haven't found any info on him this season is Adan Abu-Ali who IMHO was a Mike Duco clone in stature and tenacity on the ice.
It will be interesting to see what other players from the 2011 draft will be attending. If I recall there was three goalies drafted with Greenwood(?) being very highly thought of
by various scouting services. (other goalies was Moylan 8th round and Bogart in the 15th). Greenfield is an American who still hasn't committed to the NCAA, I know this just creates more of a logjam in net but it's a good problem to have if Spott can move them for something else. The one other forward that caught my eye was Stephen Cooney from Northern Ontario who had good offensive numbers and is (was?) 6-3 195 lbs and growing.
