Happy opening day of training camp everyone! It's finally here!

The first isn't far off now.

Please excuse this over-exuberant post; I am completely hockey starved. My son's games just don't cut it.

Can't wait for the reports from camp to start rolling in from B's fans.

Bueller Day damn allergies....heading to gym for an hour or so, then pick up the yute (early release due to voting, how convenient) and over to Wilmington....I'm off the first week of October to just relax and do a bunch of stuff and lo and behold the Bruins are at Ristuccia most of that week.

I'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Monday. Sunday will be short because of work. And I'm sure I'll be sick next Wednesday.

Can anyone shed some light on the workouts at the TDBNG?

I was thinking about bringing my 6 year old to the:
Sep. 21
Practice Session 1 at 10:00 a.m. at TD Banknorth Garden (Boston, MA)
Practice Session 2 at 12:15 p.m. at TD Banknorth Garden (Boston, MA)
Rookie Session at 2:30 p.m. at TD Banknorth Garden (Boston, MA)

And I was wondering if its open to the public and what goes on.

Thanks

Not sure if practice is over, but the new B's just left the ice after a VERY physical session.

Lots of battle drills -- some of which got very heated.

I would not be surprised if we had a fight if they do these again.

by bish

First session complete

The Zamboni is on the ice, laying down a fresh sheet after the first session of rookie camp.

In yellow: Mikko Lehtonen, Zach Hamill, Blake Wheeler.

Blue: Jordan Knackstedt, Levi Nelson, Wacey Rabbit.

White: Brad Marchand, Jamie Arniel, Matt Marquardt, Maxime Sauve, Yuri Cheremetiev.

Under the watch of Providence coach Rob Murray, the freshmen completed line drills in the first session.

They concluded the session with battle drills. Each defenseman had to complete three down-low one-on-ones. In one square-off Marquardt sent Doug Krantz flying with a shoulder thump, spun around, and whizzed a puck past G Kevin Regan. Good stuff.

Brad Marchand and Jordan Knackstedt threw down their gloves and went at it in the second session

http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/...s/bruins_blog/



Marchand vs. Knackstedt

While it was not, by any means, a heavyweight battle, it did fit in with the physical nature of the afternoon.

Marchand comes as advertised -- major league pest -- and has shown more than a little grit and peskiness today.

Blake Wheeler had shown some displeasure with Marchand earlier when the two collided during a drill and Brad gave the bigger guy a little extra. And the conversation around the press box was trying to figure out how many guys were annoyed with Brad.

wonder who won the tilt. Looks good on both players. Knackstedt won't take crap, Marchand won't back down. I love it.

Marchand is certainly letting everyone know he plans to do anything and everything to win a job out of camp. If he sets his sights on the opposing team rather than his own once the dust settles during training camp than this kid could end up a fan favorite here.

I don't know, but I do love it.

I have always loved a "pack mentality" when it comes to a team. That to me makes guys think twice as opposed to a designated goon.

Although I appreicate Marchand's instensity...he needs to treat these players like teammates. It says in Bish's blog that he gave Wheeler a little something extra...If he is giving something "extra" to teammates in training camp, I hope he doesn't alienate people and/or become Avery-esque in going too far all the time.

I disagree...you didn't hear about Lucic fighting his own teammates...What he needs to do is play hard, not back down, but you don't give your teammates anything "extra". That is simply dirty.

These guys are rookies trying to make the team, it's completely unlike the actual camp when all the vets have arrived. These guys realize they may be teammates one day, but they want to be the first one to make the team and that means play as hard as they can and play their game even if it involves getting under other player's skin.

we'll have to agree to disagree then.

If a little extra shove .."dirty" or not came between me being able to put food on the table or not...............well I'd be shovin' 'till the cows came home.


This isn't college and it isn't junior.
It is real life dog eat dog world now.

I have this take on it:

They are individuals - free agents if you will - all trying to make the TEAM. Once you make the team then you are teammates - until that point that player lined up opposite you is trying to take your spot and food from your dinner table.

No he doesn't. This is training camp for the pros, not college. It's every man for himself at this stage and this is exactly what the Bruins are looking for in their young players.

I think it just goes to show how serious Marchand is about making this team out of camp. He had something like 3 total fights in 240+ games played in the Q over the past few years. He's also never been known as the kind of player who backs up his chippy/chirpy play, which I think he needs to start doing more often.

I am not saying that players aren't supposed to be tough...What good comes out of giving a player something extra after the play in training camp. It doesn't take much toughness to crosscheck a guy after a play or mouth off. It takes a lot more to go across the middle and take a hit to make a play. Maybe Marchand should focus day 1 on that rather than going afte rplayers after the play and fighting.
