I didn't read the whole thread, but I would like to know which position Galchenyuk is playing in the camp? Is he LW, RW or Center and who is his linemate?

Thank you

I would say the scrimmage has the best chance of being aired. Practice, definitely not.

Or how many people plan on quitting work early. I may head over after I'm done and if it's not too big of a line, may just stick around.

I was planning on going, but after I read it's 'first come-first served' I said forget it.. No way am I going through the zoo for that. It'll probably be on TV. They will easily fill out the Bell Center this Thursday.

Suspicious...
First season in two years he wasn't recovering from a shoulder injury over the summer I believe. He was able to gain muscle instead of rehab

Yeah, we will try to get there as early as possible. I really don't know what to expect honestly.

Believe it or not there is and has always been a place for elusive perimeter players in the NHL as much as there has been big, physical players. I would agree that the Habs have too many of the former on the blueline, but this isn't Ice Hockey for the NES where you can replace the thin fast, player with the fat slow player and balance your team out.
That is my entire point. This team has Diaz, Weber, St-Denis and Kaberle.

Only one of those four should be on this team. They are not what this team needs.

Pick one. They are pretty much interchangeable with regard to their defensive ability. Get rid of the other three.

And never did I want a fat slow player on D. But thanks for making the extreme into an absurd desire that I do not want.

Well, there will only be two of those players in the line up if PK isn't signed or there's an injury.
Therrien said he's expecting Emelin and Diaz to have progressed, and play better than last year. So if there's slow off the gate, they'll likely get scratched fast. I'm pretty sure his patience with Kaberle will be thin if we remember his comments about him on AC last year as a regular guest there.

No I was just saying that in Ice Hockey for Nintendo, you get to choose between either the fat guy who hits hard or the skinny guy who skates fast, but in reality every player is different and a defenseman isn't necessarily better than Diaz just because he plays physical. Replacing Diaz with Commodore makes our blue line worse. If this was the Commodore of a few years ago it would be a different story, but Commodore was poor last year and has not shown in the AHL he can still keep up with NHL pace. There's a reason the Bulldogs were able to sign him so easily.

All 4 of those guy you mentioned are tradeable, but at least Diaz and Kaberle have NHL value. The jury is out on Weber and I'd move him before his value decreases since I don't see him playing much this year. St-Denis has little value and is fine for the AHL and as an NHL emergency callup. The D is undersized and that's one reason it's probably going to suck, but we missed out on the free agent market and only have Boullion to show for it.

With Subban, Emelin, Boullion who Therrien will probably start, and to an extent Gorges, all of our pairings should have a guy who doesn't get pushed around very easily, with Kaberle and Diaz fighting for who gets the honor of playing with the cube. The only "soft" pairing I can see is Diaz and Kaberle, which isn't exactly ideal but would see little even strength minutes.

Funny but true: top player play better with top players. If Gally is ready, it should be for the first two lines.
