Nice to see Rimmer get a shot at main camp. Clearly was the best of the bunch in rookie camp, and could be a really decent find for us. At this point in their careers, he is better than Bunz IMO, however things may change going forward. Oh well, never hurts to have depth at that position.

This was sent out last night.

@sunterryjones: @dallaseakins So there are going to be sugar plums at training camp along with donuts, etc for the media?”

It would be funny if they showed up to this and a peeler or something

Clearly the response from Dallas is "What donuts, Terry?"

They would have to hit everything, because they would never, ever, eeeeeeeeeeever touch the puck.

I don't care what kind of shape an NHL coach is in. Ken Hitchcock never ran a triathlon in his life and his teams do OK

Mandated by the head coach.. Media food is veggies and fruit. Usually donuts and coffee. pic.twitter.com/fcMphV5uDO

1. Ryan Rishaug ‏@TSNRyanRishaug 31m
People are kind of walking awkwardly around the table, peering at the veggies, unopened.. I think a full scale media revolt may be coming.

1. Ryan Rishaug ‏@TSNRyanRishaug 34m
I like, respect my fellow media members here in Edmonton a lot, But sharing finger food at 9am? We’re drawing straws for Timmies donut run

1. Gene Principe ‏@GenePrincipe 40m
New coach, new food? Dallas Eakins mandated fruit and veggies instead of donuts for the media.Going to be a long year



Fav response:

1. Copper & Blue ‏@CopperandBlue 27m
Remember, the same people that criticize Hemsky for being professionally soft are complaining about healthy snacks provided for free.


That a boy coach! Show them *****es who's the boss.

#Oilers plan tomorrow is to bag-skate the players to see where the players fitness level is heading into the season.
Kick the hell out of them Dallas.

Haha, I would not want to piss off Cam Neely (Who, has indeed agreed to reprise his role as Seabass for the new dumb and dumber movie).

Tomorrow should be a juicer and a bunch of fresh veggies. Kale. Lots and lots of Kale.

Seriously though, withholding coffee can be dangerous.

Wow, Eakins cracking the whip already. Bag skate on the 1st day? I hope that will inspire the players to not have to go through one again.

Will find out very quickly who wants to be a pro hockey player and who doesn't.
