Thank you so much for the report-stellar work!
As a fan of the Euros, I was delighted at Zharkovs early progress, and thought he looked sensational. I know he hit a huge slump, and had an up and down finish, but really looked a top guy.
I am very excited at the thought of him and Kuptsov.
Did the latter look to have improved his finishing?

Goalies-
Lavigne-16yr old, goalie of the future, will play lots with wellington dukes
Graham and Banitsiotis excellent camps one will back up subban, both deserve to play in the o

Defence-
DeSousa-wow this kid has moves and calmness, very patient and has stud writen all over him
Morris- needs more seasoning with the dukes, but plays with an edge, mixed it up with Sandlak tonite

Forwards-
Berisha-good camp, very sturdy and good shot, will benefit by playing with vets
M.Cramarossa-pretty much invisable, might need more time
Coric-great hands and vision, alittle on the small side, kyle wellwood clone
Ming-good future, needs seasoning
Petti-comes as advertised, sick hands, great speed reminds me of Bryan Cameron
Heffernan-steal in the 4th rd, big, good skater, loves to hit, IMO should be on the team
Girduckis-as a walk-on very impressive, already signed with wellington
Bricknell-free-agent, not a chance, terrible skater
Cobbold-Price- will be back again next year
Ross-still at camp, might be injured?

Impressions of Vets-
Zharkov-man on a mission, wants to prove that he should have gone earlier in NHL draft
J.Cramarossa-great moves, speed to burn, looking for a BIG year
Brassard- grew up, and bulked up to 207lbs, wants to be more physical this year
Simmonds-should be in wellington, cant see taking ice from a rookie for a 19yold with 3-5 goals per year
Austin-big time future pro, trimmed some fat over the summer, ready to log big minutes
Shaw-overager, steady eddie, doesnt back down from anyone
J.Subban-look for a break-out year, learned alot at ivan hlinka tourny
Kuptsov-big russian, pro shot, will thrive here in belvegas, with Zharkov
Sandlak-look for a offensive break-out by the physical power-forward
Carnevale-speedster, hits like a train, might shock people
Silas-OA d-man, could bring a good return in trade if dealt
Bignell-people say he has grown? fringe player
Gaunce-look for huge #'s, all-star and WJ team
M.Subban-sky's the limit, all-star and WJ team

George and Staff have TOUGH decisions to make, look for some vets to get bumped
