I would also run it a lot differently than a prospect camp situation in that I would scrimmage a couple of full teams a few times to see how they all look. Who can I evaluate and send back down and tell what they need to work on to be NHL ready etc.. Part of the process for me would be sitting down in a room with them and talking going over some of their last year in AHL etc.

I am a hands on guy I did help out once for high school football and appreciated the extra time I got with kids to actually sit down and talk to them before the season started. See where their head was etc.. I worked with a guy one season in basketball a seven footer when began the kid couldnt dribble two times and not lose the ball he never amounted to much but was able to work on some things and he became a backup center for western michigan for two years.

We dont bring everyone to prospect camp if we did would be a different feeling for me
At lot of this already happens, actually.

Why I can't read ****** about us:

Quote:
Current Team (I’ll skip Stamkos and St. Louis for this):
Top player #1 - Teddy Purcell (RW)
Purcell is one of the hardest working and most underrated players on the Lightning roster, and his grit and scoring ability cannot go unannounced.
I hope none of you said that. Decided to look at our 30 teams in 30 days deal.

Also, I feel like I know FP's ****** username.

Seems reasonable that Thompson is more of a top player on our team than Hedman

What makes you say that?

As for the list, how about #3?

Quote:
Top player #3 - Nate Thompson (C)

Thompson is a much maligned NHL player who finally came in to his own on the Syracuse Crunch, and after spending a full season with the Lightning, it’s hoped that he can develop into a good support scorer for the Bolts.
I don't even know who he's talking about here. Possibly Brett Connolly, but the events suggested are out of order.

#4 also has similar problems with details. The way it's worded suggests that Carle has been with the Lightning since the Dan Boyle trade.
Quote:
Top player #4 - Matt Carle (D)

Matt Carle was acquired in the trade with San Jose for Dan Boyle, and while his offensive prowess is nice, his sometimes boneheaded decisions on defense leave fans scratching their heads. I mean, at least he isn’t Eric Brewer, but come on. He’s still young, though, so hopefully he can develop into a solid D-man in the years to come.
Confusing the Bruins for the Rangers in the 2011 playoffs is a pretty egregious mistake as well.

nhl.com: Seven candidates for a breakout season in 2013-14

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=680269
Quote:
Ben Bishop, Tampa Bay Lightning: It has taken a few years, but Bishop finally may have a team he can call his own. The 6-foot-7 goaltender was lost in the shuffle in St. Louis and stuck behind Craig Anderson with the Ottawa Senators; he got his first extended chance to start after the Lightning acquired him in early April. Bishop’s 3-4-1 record and 2.99 goals-against average weren't great, but his .917 save percentage and 33.6 shots-faced per game indicate he wasn’t getting a lot of help. He could have the inside track for the starting job after getting a two-year contract extension not long after being acquired, but will be competing with Anders Lindback for playing time. If Bishop wins the competition, he could give the Lightning the goaltending they've been looking for since Dwayne Roloson led them to the Eastern Conference Final in 2011.

So on the main boards there is a rumour that Hainsey can be had for 1 million dollars. I have no idea where to put him, but he might be a good fill in for the inevitable Salo injury.

Replace Brewer with him if Brewer gets back to his 2012-2013 self instead of his 2010-2011 trade deadline self.

I don't think Yzerman signs anybody else outright. Maybe he gives out an unanticipated camp tryout or two to keep people motivated, but I doubt its anybody with too much upside.

That said, I'd love Hainsey on the cheap. I really think we need one more 4 thru 7 type of defensive focused defenseman. For not really changing anything about our already subpar D, would it really hurt anything to at least get a little more depth?

Don't buy this at all. When UFA first started had a list and Ron was at like 3.5 to 4 million range as they put up numbers. Not sure where that data is so dont ask but was numbers I remember. For him to do 1 million I will believe it when see it. Still figure him for 2 to 2.5 at least.

2-2.5 was what I thought he was worth too.

So I’ve been thinking about what our line-ups will look like come October, and I keep coming up with the same conclusion: We have way to much (potential) talent. What a great problem to have right? When I look at the CapGeek page, I see the following lineups

Purcell-Stamkos-St.Louis
Or as I like to call it, ‘the line-up that is so unsurprising that everyone will be surprised when it happens.’

Killorn-Filipula-Malone
Or the ‘Wait until Malone gets injured and then replace him with someone younger and/or better’ line.

Palat-Johnson-Drouin
Or the ‘Scary as hell rookie line.’ I (like many of you) think that Drouin will be in the second line pretty quickly if he plays like he is expected to, but at the same time, I kind of think that Cooper may try something crazy and do an all rookies 3rd line early, just to how it works.

Labrie-Thompson-Crombeen
The ‘We wont be scoring… but you wont be either’ line. I actually feel like this will be a hell of shut down line for us this year, as long as Labrie keeps improving.

And of course, Pyatt for the extra... I just can’t find a place for him. I guess he could go on the third line without any issue, but I'm sticking with my rookie 3rd line idea haha.

That leaves: Tyrell, Connolly, Panik, and Brown for call ups who would be ready to go immediately… and I really have no idea for our center depth who would be ready to go now that Johnson is assumed up here.

What do you guys think?
