Visited the Tetons during our Yellowstone camping trip two years ago...absolutely beautiful.

If we sign Corbett I'll be ecstatic. The guy was slated to go in the draft and we got him undrafted? Major, major steal.

In the draft thread a while back I said I'd figure Corbett would be at camp just because he's local and will be in town to attend. I wouldn't be all that surprised if they get a contract worked out with him at camp.

However, what happens with free agency will likely play a big role in whether or not they can sign him (or any other undrafted prospects) as they'll be close-ish to the contract limit if they sign some players.

I wonder if they're going to have that Thomas kid back from that DIII school out east. Was fairly impressive at camp last year. No idea what his status is right now though...

Corbett would be a major coup for a team that is weak with defensive prospects right now. The kid had a bad run at the end of the season but that could be for a lot of factor.

We're not close to the contract limit yet and I think this is why Fletcher intentionally left some spots open (and for what I'm told). Corbett I think could be a good project to work on.

I don't buy the fact that it was his terrible playoffs that sunk him from a top 100 prospect to undrafted. There had to be another factor in there.

If this is true, I wonder who out of Hackett, Kuemper, Gustafsson, Michalek wont be there?

If I had to guess, Michalek. For a college kid, paying your way from the east coast may not exactly be something that's all that viable for him. Just speculating, though.

I don't see why they wouldn't be able to have 5 goalies there. It's possible Michalek wouldn't be there though, as he's not from the area and NCAA players have to pay their own way. Also, I'm not sure what the age limits are or whether Hackett still qualifies.

That was my first thought as well, but if the kid can afford Harvard I'm guessing he can afford a flight here.

I agree. However, for a kid who's hockey future is very much uncertain, there's a bit of a difference between footing the bills for Harvard and paying for a flight to Dev Camp. Ideally, yes, I'd like to see him here. I'm just saying that I could understand if he wasn't.

The scrimmages at the end of camp have been one of the highlights of my summers for the past two years. It's been very cool to see the the pool of young talent get larger and larger, thus the scrimmages become more entertaining and competitive.

Cant disagree with anything you said, but going off of the bolded. considering the position he is in, if he thinks he has any future in pro hockey, he pretty much has to be at camp doesnt he?

I think the age limit is around 25. Also if your still on your entry level deal. Once you sign that second contract your done.

I laughed but it's kind of true.

Yeah... I've been dreaming to actually see a game or a couple of games at some point next year but the flights are way too expensive.
