I have no idea who was who, but just some general comments.
There did not seem to be the same type of speed and intensity that was present a couple of years ago when Pleks, Hainsey, Ribs and that gang were on the ice.
I was most concerned by the lack of foot speed during some of the puck handling drills.
The 1 vs 1 vs 1 that whitesnake describe was quite good. You got a better chance to see who has better vision and hockey sense. Some were much better at finding open ice. Some couldn't turn with a puck. Price started slow in that one then seemed to get a little more serious.
It was nice to see Carbo and Muller enjoying themselves on the ice. I don't recall ever seeing the head coach at these things before.
Pierre Gauthier looks like he's aged.
My favorite moment (exemplifies the whole fish-bowl experience that it is to be part of the Habs). Gainey walks in and sits down after a few handshakes. He's just sitting there watching the drills and there's like 5 TV cameras filming him. He's not saying anything, just expressionless but they are filming away.
1 question: Why is Price not at the Team Canada camp like Chips and Lats.
