Pretty much, just a lot of nonsense.

Given the lack of reports, I'd say that's an accurate assumption.

I went to camp today.
We went hiking, then we made tie-dye t-shirts, and we did some sing-a-longs.

Kip Brennan, Ryan Flinn and Brad Norton all looked good today. Ken Belanger was a healthy scratch.

Is there going to be some sort of scrimmage at some point?

Just want to come at the right time. I know this camp is about development, not evaluation, but I figured a scrimmage is the best time to find out where some of these guys are at in their development.

Just left camp, the kids from Manchester stood out the most. Toffoli, Pearson and Andreoff, Mersch also looked good. Among the D I'd say Miller and Gravel looked decent and the goalie we just drafted (on my phone and don't want to spell it) looked good.

If the years past are any indication then there should be a "Prospects camp" sometime in August usually a couple weeks before camp starts that is typically scrimmages. Most of the guys at dev camp will be there. Usually the last day or so of this camp is more "game" situations... I put that in quotes because it usually consists of puck protection drills and half ice 2 on 2 drills. So I'd shoot for one of the last days if that's what you're hoping to see.

Danny Rousin scored 117 points playing at Rim.

I expect him to make the team this year.

That Sidney Crosby kid who attended the Kings' rookie camp a few years ago may become a pretty good player someday. Though I doubt he'll be as good as Ray Macias.

Daryl Evans was the star of prospect camp today. Skating around with no laces in his skates, firing slap shots on the goalie drills.

True story.

Only made it to the afternoon sessions

Lots of 3 on 3 // 4 on 4 // and 3 on 3 with 2 nets on one side of the blue line.. (small hockey)

here are some random firey thoughts:
--Auger looked awkward as expected on the stickhandling drills but used his size effectively on the 4 on 4's. Shot was a bit weak. He's for sure a project.
--Toffoli looked so natural and comfortable. He was making it all look so effortless and easy.. . Dude's a stud and is beaming with confidence... His hands and offensive awareness are attributes that are advertised about.. but to me he looked to be one of the FASTER skaters today. Awesomeness
--Another surprisingly fast player was Kitsyn, who also looked to be an offensive stand out today, his hard work contributed to the only 4 on 4 goal scored in the scrimmage-drill.. created space and shot it to a spot where mersch could easily tip it in. BUt yes, that awkward walking in mud skating style is a think of the past... he looks good out there in the skating department.
--Colin Miller is a smooth-slick player. Almost dazzling at times with the way he was stick handling and skating...maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration but Miller is a treat to watch.
-----Was paying more attention to the offensive side of things... noticing good plays on Offensive rather than taking note on defensive plays... overall the defense was really tight... Like i said earlier.. only ONE goal was scored on the 4 on 4...maybe 3 goals on the small ice 3 on 3.. and NO goals scored on the full ice 3 on 3.

--Now i know you want to hear about ZYKOV... He comes as advertised as well, a heavy player.. not so tall, but really fearless and good against the boards. He kept up just fine in all the drills. Still too soon to tell, nothing discouraging nothing outrageously ENcouraging.
--Other players i liked were: Macdermid, Bartosak, Mersch, Pearson, Weal, Andreoff.
--Players somewhat disappointing even though it really is unfair to say so given the one hour sample size: Forbort, Berube, Shore.

To me the highlight of the day was a save that Niederberger made going post to post on a gimme one timer thru the crease.

Not sure if i'll be able to make it tomorrow but i know KP will be there.

I attended the afternoon session today. It was very entertaining, lots of highly competitive drills, and a 4 on 4 scrimmage. I was very impressed by Auger. I thought he showed a lot of skill. His skating seemed good to me. At one point he blew by a defensemen on a 3 on 3 drill. He also made some great passes and showed oaff really impressive puck possesion skills. There was one play in particular where he was skating the puck up the ice and protecting the puck from 2 players who were draped all over him. He used his size very well and had complete control of the puck the entire time. He broke free from the players and created a scoring chance.

Auger looks like one of those players that is "calm with the puck".When he gets the puck, he controls it, takes his time, and makes a good decision. I didnt see a lot of panic in his game.

Sounds like *gulp* Jason Allison

Thank you both for the writeups!

I'm disappointed in the lack of updates on Jens Karlsson. That's a 1st round pick I know will be well spent.
