hmmm...that Young Stars roster looks a bit better than i expected. didn't know for sure if some of those guys who played a year of Pro already would be there, but that's good news. even more excited to see how the 'young stars' all look out there now, and how our crop compares to these other teams.
Nothing overly interesting, quote from Mac T on coaching in Chicago, and some stuff from Jensen. Was hoping for a bit more info on how the tests actually went, but meh...still early. I think on-ice stuff is starting shortly this morning.
12:33 p.m. -- Practice just kicked up about 200 notches aas the players scrimmage 4-on-4; no goals yet as Brendan Jensen and Karel St. Laurent (both free agents) hold their own, but Antoine Roussel just delivered a nice clean hit on Anton Rodin.
