Isles moving prospect camp up to late June

I found this rumor and speculation interesting.

Near the bottom of this Dee Karl article,she reports the isles are moving their prospect camp from July to late June.She implies it's to give the team an idea, of which prospects are nhl ready before July 1st,when teams start shopping for ufas.

I wouldn't read a lot into it, quite a few teams do the same thing.

Wow, that almost sounds logical and makes sense, no way the Isles do this

Yeah, this way they can tout "X" players as NHL ready, thereby giving them an excuse as to why they didn't sign anyone of consequence on July 1.

Here are the NHL ready prospects

Czikas, Ullstrom, Donnovan

both goalies are ready for a backup role, though I'd rather they both remain in the AHL.

No one else is close to ready.

Agreed, though possibly Lee or Mayfield is ready to be sent ahead to the AHL. This isn't just to see what cheap NHL options are available.

We have some European kids to watch as well.

Somehow I get the feeling this is groundwork to lay the defense for inactivity come July.

I think Lee committed to going back to school for next year. it won't shock me if he's a no show at this years camp anyway, since it's possible he won't want to have to pay his way to get to the camp again.

I hope it is late June. I'm going on a cruise from July 15th-22nd, and thought for sure the rookie scrimmage would be either the 14th or 21st. I really enjoy going to that rookie game/scrimmage skills competition. Plus some of the money goes to charity, so it's a good thing all around.

Despite what Dee says, there is no way any prospect makes the team based on a prospects mini camp. At least I hope to the hockey gods that isn't the case. Shame on the organization if they're not bringing in outside talent because some 20 year old kid had a good showing during the summer.

I don't think Donovan is NHL ready. Yeah he looked good in his brief flash late in the season, but he should be back in the AHL.

I hate to break this to you but rumor has it the rookie scrimmage will be held at ice works and NOT be open to the public. Just invited season ticket holders, so once again this organization takes something that worked out well with the fans and turned it into a shot in the nuts.

What the hell is with this team? Last years rookie scrimmage was a huge success. So what's the deal with changing every thing?

Actually, I'm thinking that if the reported train of thought is right, then they'll be inviting a few guys outside of the organization who they're thinking of signing.

Guys...I'm quite confident that this has everything to do with the fact that the current CBA ends July 1 so teams cannot have any contact with any of their players or PROSPECTS after that until the lockout is over.

Since CBA negotiations haven't even started yet, it's safe to say that if you don't speak or scout your current players by July 1 then you won't be seeing or speaking to them for quite some time.

The NBA just went through this and missed half the season. The NHL and their players seem to think this was a good blueprint and are following it to a T.

I think you're spot on here.

I think the answer also includes looking at prospects before July 1st because Garth knowsthat some of them must be traded to bring in that elusive Dman

No, CBA expires on September 15. There is lots of time for CBA negotiations, we just have no idea how far apart both sides are right now. We could lose another entire season or not miss anytime, no idea right now.
