Penguins Training Camp Thread

thought it might be nice to have a thread on training camp. mods feel free to delete if you disagree

Observations from those that can go attend the open camps and other thoughts could go here.

Also any info on streaming of camp or if it's on TV could go here too.

Molinari said on twitter that Geno is arriving in Pittsburgh today and will skate tomorrow. Also the roster will be set by Friday 3PM, which is a day before the opening game against Philly.

Oh man, I would have been there, but then I realized I have the HF Boards fantasy draft today at 4. I didn't want to bail on the gang, and I didn't want to list a queue in proxy.

It is a great day to go, being unseasonably warm today.

I hope to read some detailed reports from all who attend.

I was just thinking, TD will be there...

My favorite poster has let me down.

I feel sick.

Oh man.....I feel shame......haha. I would LOVE to be there. But then I would have some angry campers here in the fold if I ditched the draft. (that would be very rude of me) Gotta keep my commitment.

I think he would have to. I have a feeling Nisky is going to suprise a lot of people this year. He was playing very solid at the end of last year and even stepped up his physical game IMO

And I just said in the other thread that I didn't think any of our guys on waivers would get claimed . Which goons are available in Free Agency still?

So that whole Dejan comment about the org being disappointed with Despres' commitment was BS?

I hope you're right. I will in fact be surprised if Niskanen plays full time with Letang and is considered successful there.

You need a smartphone TD.

Half my posts now come when I'm stuck baby clothes shopping.

Shero does I imagine, no one as scary as Big Mac available though.

Hope Mac actually did get claimed. That'll take a pointless security blanket away from Shero and DB. And even more importantly... I hope they don't try to replace him. That era is gone, gone, gone. Get someone in there with some jam who can actually play.

Really? Dejean is full of BS? There's a surprise...

I hope we don't pick up a goon, we don't really need one. Mac was absolutely useless last year.
