As far as the Kings go, there haven't been many college guys that attend these. Pretty much only if they are a top pick. I don't think Turnbull ever did, but Roe attended one or two IIRC.

Am I the only one surprised there aren't more invitees in this camp? Heven't there been a bigger number of invites in this camp in the past or am I thinking of the Rookie camp that will start in August?
Sorry, I meant to say, do Russians usually attend these camps, not that they can't be paid for. I know Kitsyn did after his draft, but that was cause it was right after he was drafted and was already in LA.
