Wow, I know at the Leafs camp there were quite a few fights during scrimmages and such. Things seemed to be going real easy the first few days, what drill were they doing?

A one on one battle drill, Ritchie did a Morrowesque reversal in front of the net and Coyle. Coyle knocked his head on the ice, which was the issue

Hate to see him get hurt, but he looked awful when I saw him.

Labrie on the other hand is one hell of a warrior. I think he'll be bottom pair in Austin this year for sure.

Rundown that basically agrees with everyone ever:

Glennie was overshadowed by Chiasson, Stransky and Ritchie, still good, but he didn't look all that engaged. Chiasson is ready imo. Stansky's skating needs work, as does his shot. Ritchie is going to be basically James Neal, great shot, great drive, great passing, great physical game. Oleksiak has superb puck and skating prowess, plays a very very solid positional game, needs to put on some more muscle. Nemeth is pretty level headed and good with the puck, spent time practicing with Oleksiak, also needs to put on some muscle. Campbell IS NOT 6'4", but the dude is pretty laid back. The Smiths showed some flashes, but overall I wasn't entirely impressed with their game consistently. Austin is one hard worker though. Jokipakka and Vance have pretty average skating but good puck skills. Molin is slick as hell, and no, I'm not talking about his flow.

Daley was there for the first bit of practice til Coyle got hurt. It's interesting watching him practice with these kids, considering that Daley was smaller than literally every single D-man there.

Of note: Mercer (invitee) was outstanding. Pretty solid defensively for a 5'10" guy against our big powerful forwards.

So he's going to come out awesome, get suspended which results in his play and development stagnating such that he has seasons where he starts off strong for the first month then falls off before he gets traded after two seasons of seasons of this, and the following season he goes on to put up a solid point per game numbers and becomes an All Star?

You are forgetting the part about endless reminders that the Stars got hosed in the trade

According to Ralph, Shane Churla is on the ice today to teach the kids how to protect themselves if they get jumped on the ice in the AHL.

Yeah I remember from Day 1 he said this is the first time he's handled the puck since the surgery. It's probably nothing. I get people are concerned because of the history, but you don't want to overwork something you just had surgery on.

Yeah I saw him leave the ice in pain looking at his hand on Saturday morning. They are doing tons of puck handling drills so, good chance he aggravated it.

An implanted screw was rubbing the bone or something like that. I read it somewhere the other day, made it sound like it's something he'll have to deal with..seemed a bit troubling to me.

prosoects camp

I'm in Dallas for another week and want to visit the prospects camp. I am just wondering if it's open to the public and how much it costs. Thanks

finally saw team a outside of puckhandling drills.

FORWARDS...

i'll reaffirm prior comments regarding chiasson. he looks like the most ready forward. good size, good hands, good accurate shot w/o needing to waste time to secure the puck. loudest (by far) clang off the glass with a ridiculous snapper.

also liked ritchie. he has a really good shot too.

the smiths looked good also. in the 3-on-3 competitive drill, reilly had several nice moves (showing good patience) to score against campbell.

glennie and his wrist were out there today. nothing overly impressive. he showed some frustration during the 3-on-3 drill.

DEFENSEMEN...

reaffirm jokipakka's skating ability (or lack thereof); dude will seriously need to improve that to become a serious nhl prospect.

dillon was initiating a lot of contact and getting away with penalty-like acts. other guys seemed to take it well.

OTHER...

campbell's a goofball... was having alot of fun out there. he and oleksiak muckin' it up.

to me, certainly amongst the top forwards, but nothing to put him ahead of the likes of chiasson, ritchie, or the smiths. going by just what i've seen from this development camp, i personally wouldn't put my hopes on faksa making his nhl debut this year.

Agreed. You can tell he has the tools but he definitely needs some more time to catch up to some of the other guys.
