if they are good enough and especially if they are willing to sign ahl deals you can bring in more than one guy. its not like signing bell to play with the whale would prevent us from also signing 'this years' jam up front.

he turns 19 in august so I'm pretty sure he is eligible to be drafted next year and can't be signed yet.

here's a bit of internet scoop on the tryout players who weren't in Juniors or college hockey last year:
Luke Esposito is a nephew of Mark Messier; hockey career info was not found.
Ben Foster from Choate will play for Princeton beginning in 2013, after a season in US Junior at Muskegon
Alex Rauter from Choate (and NJ) will play for Cornell beginning in 2013, after a season in US Junior at Omaha
Tomas Klima is already 22, has played at senior and lower levels in Czech and Slovak leagues http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=48183
The 2 Russian D are young and have some KHL experience
Igor Golovko D 1990-05-17 62 205# http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=17573
Nikita Zaytsev\Zaitsev D 1991-10-29 61 176# http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=34773
Golovko is older and bigger but less proven, Zaitsev is only 20 but has 3 full KHL seasons already
Goalie Gabe Grunwald is son of Knicks' president (who had been an NBA exec in Toronto) and will play for Wisconsin beginning in 2013

Some notes from Day 2 of Prospect camp.

Quote:
Treff tweets, “Most impressive in scrimmage–Stajcer, Nieves, McColgan, Andersson, Miller, Fast, and invitee Kyle Jean.”
Quote:
@thenyrangers
#NYR Prospects scrimmage over, White beats Blue 5-3...NIeves, Yogan, Andersson, and Lindberg among the goal scorers; Stajcer shutout period
Quote:
Some notes from Leslie Treff on twitter:

Nieves has good stick work
McColgan really flying.
Hope hits Miller and Miller flicks him off.
Fast is amazing protecting the puck.
Fast does not look particularly fast, but McColgan has stepped up every area of his game.
Miller looks much more mature, not only body, but also play.
Nieves looks very impressive all over the ice w good work ethic.
Fast very good @ maneuvering in tight spaces.

Fasth (i refuse to call him by this new name) used to be incredibly fast...if his injury is indeed hampering him, we should take anything we read about him with a grain of salt. he was, imho, a more offensively talented version of Carl Hagelin.

He injured his knee less than a year ago. It takes a very long time to get back to 100%. I'm not surprised he's a step slower now and I think in a year's time he'll be right about where he was before he went down with the injury.

Inferno, do you really think he had a top-end speed like Kreider and Hagelin? From what I saw, it was more quickness (so he starts and stops faster than other people) and elusiveness more than straight-line speed. I think people confuse the two as he looks like he is overly fast because he gets up to his full speed so quickly.

I thought he suffered a compound fracture of the either the tibia/fibula. Even if it wasn't a CF, that injury takes 6 months to a year to fully recover, it's nasty. Plus all the muscles atrophy, rebuilding strength in your thigh is fairly east but your lower leg not so much.

Honestly I thought this would set him back a year or so. It's a lot of work to get to full strength, I have seen that happen 2-3 times to friends. They weren't NHL prospects to be sure and didn't have that level of trainers and rehab available to them. FYI

Edit: To be clear, I am no Dr., the above is based on anecdotal evidence and reading.

i thought he was close to that same type of speed...maybe not quite that extreme, but not too far off either.

You're probably right. I knew he hurt his leg but thought it was his ACL, but a broken leg definitely sounds more familiar. Either way, we're both right in the sense that the rehab takes a very long time. It's one thing to be able to skate again, it's another to be right back were he was before the injury.

There was a lot of hype about MSC, anybody knows how he looked in the scrimmage. I have not read a peep about him.

Let's Talk About St. Croix

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL draft, he is currently 18 and a center for the WHL's Edmonton Oil Kings. This is his stat line for 11'-12'.

GP G A PTS +/-
72 45 60 105 +40

Obviously an offensive player, but I'm not gonna pretend I know the WHL like the back of my hand. I'm sure you guys know the order of best leagues for prospects better than I do. Anyways what do you guys think about this kid? Something special, trade bait, or lucky to eventually make the roster?

Bjugstad is staying at Minny for his junior year. They will one of the favorites to win next season. Should be a very good experience for Brady Skjei. From: @Russostrib

All skills, no brains. He has a 10 cent head on and off the ice.

I wouldn't mind signing him, and he may go undrafted again, but I'm not exactly a believer in his ability to make the NHL.

Odds are probably that he will become a Dawes type of player, or a little worse probably. But sooner or later one of these kids will find that way to just get it done a the NHL level.
Worse then Dawes is almost quite literally useless.
