Obviously extremely early, but Hiller looked sharp and confident out there, from what I saw in those videos.

Great news about Lubo. Can't wait to hear about the scrimmage on Monday.


Edit: How did Maroon look out there? I think he could possibly be under the radar a little.

Maybe it's because it's the first day and I have normally attended later days, but I don't remember Carlyle stopping drills so often to explain things.

FYI from Eric Stephens

Quote:
Randy Carlyle on Day 1: "We feel that there’s people in this camp that are going to surprise and make our hockey club. There are jobs open."
Quote:
Carlyle said he plans to take a third goaltender over to Europe as league rules allow for the one-time exception to carry 24 players.

Foster has some minor knee inflammation.

Highlight had to be a super drunk guy at a 9am Hockey training camp.

Not if Cogs plays LW on the 2nd line with Saku and Selanne. If that happens Holland has a chance IMO.

Maroon is slow and skates too upright. I didn't notice him other than that. That really isn't a big deal though on the first day of camp.

Other impressions:

Smaby wants a job. He was very physical for this type of day, where contact wasn't really paramount over basic positioning and cardio work. He and Zimmerman were easily the most physical. The third? Jason Blake. He had a good morning.

Palmieri looks physically ready. I expect him to make the team, and if he doesn't, it won't be because he isn't physically up to par.

Rakell is physically mature for a kid of his age. He doesn't have the puck skills nor a quick enough mind yet for the NHL, but I'm not worried about him never making it after seeing him this morning. He can skate, and he isn't small.

Hiller looked great. Easily the best goaltender, never seemed overwhelmed or discombobulated. Players weren't afraid to shoot high on him either, which speaks to their confidence as well.

DSP is a good skater for a man his size. I don't think he makes the team though, I just don't see the puck skills for a third line role. It's only one day though.

Bonino is still really, really slow. Like Brian McGratton slow. If he doesn't pick up the pace I don't see how he's going to be successful in the NHL. He just isn't big enough to overcome that skating.

Mark Bell was underwhelming and seemed out of shape. He needs to get in gear to make the team.

Gordon is smart, and he could be seen talking to the best players in his group between every turn in the drills. He can shoot, but I don't think he is sly enough nor quick enough to be another Mac. We'll see.

I was impressed with Deschamps. He was quick and shot the puck well, made good plays in the little defensive zone drills and seemed to be a little bigger. He is my sleeper pick with Macenauer to make the roster.

Etem is really fast and can snipe, but isn't physically ready.

Holland played with Ryan and they had some good chemistry. He is still inconsistent as hell though. I don't see him making the team.

The other goaltenders were fine. It's tough to analyze a bunch of breakaways from the goaltender's perspective. I thought they all made good saves at one point or another, but they were mostly working on technique for a lot of the drills, and a lot of the times wouldn't give shots 100% effort at stopping. It was a lot like the skate before a game for much of this morning.

Thanks for the recap.

Maroon and Bonino still look slow? Didn't they take some kind of intensive skating lessons this summer? We've seen with Ryan, Perry, and Ryan what our skating coaches can do to the motivated. If those guys really didn't improve much it's about time to give up hope.

It's only one day, and I'm no expert, but I thought they and McG were the slowest guys on the ice.

Is McGratton even slower than Parros? I'm pretty sure Bonino is slower than Parros.

Calling it that Smaby wins the 6th dman spot. He is the grit/troll aspect our D lacks.

I would really love it if Smaby could do what Sutton was supposed to do.

I think Smaby's maybe got the potential to make us happy about seeing #25 out on the ice again.

Bobby left the ice with an injury, may have gotten hit in the leg with a shot, not sure.

Matt Carle just lost an edge and went face first into the boards, needed to be helped off the ice.

I don't know who shot the puck that hit Ryan, or if it even was that which injured him, it was on the other side of the ice.
