All the interviews talking about the mental aspects of the SEAL training, that is the lesson they are trying to impart. Pegula-bucks in action.

Grigorenko knows the draft eligibility rules well enough to know that Freddy Roy wasn't eligible this year.

I like this kid.

Great comments about him though -- making him (Grigs) a better player, how hard Freddy works, and how talented he is. Definite tire pumping there.

I know several interviews after practice were done, which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/user/QCSportsTV (Not done by me, credit goes to qc).

Would love to see them on the ice though.
I love how Z E M G U S goes "DAWW" before he says anything. Did the same stuff in all his draft interviews.

Love the grin on Hodgson's face. He's clearly a happier guy after the move.

it sounds like the seals really kicked the guy *****. Pretty funny.

Also saw Foligno's interview. Kid seems like he has a really good head on his shoulders.

Foligno mentioned that it's something to get outworked by old guys who are "47" or something.

McNabb's putting on muscle, will stay for 2 weeks after this camp to work with their skating coach.

They might. I suspect Pegula talking about using his resources to help with the mental aspects of things fits.

Other teams (not just in the NHL) have done things like that / boot camps / etc, so it wouldn't be much of a surprise if the Sabres did.

Also re: this whole thing, where the players are saying that the biggest thing they take away is mental vs physical, I think probably the biggest aspect might be that of team building. That's obviously an aspect of boot camp for soldiers themselves, creating a sense of togetherness through adversity and the common 'enemy' of the taskmasters.

It's funny to hear him say that he was one of the best linemates he's ever played with though when you consider some of the guys he's played with before (Gusev, Kucherov, even Yakupov).


Nice to hear that McNabb is staying here after the camp to work with Dawn (the skating coach).

The mental aspect is the key. Proof-positive that Regier and Ruff understand their teams have not been mentally tough in the past, and in particular, since 2008.

For those that have never been through any sort of military special operations training: most of these training events combine as aspect of physical and mental, both designed to get a "candidate" to quit, as well as see how the "candidates" that get through react under duress.

Eg: Army special forces assessment uses drills like carrying heavy weights, in addition to personal equipment, for unknown distances along sandy trails. For a particular event, a "candidate" may be asked to carry his own gear (rifle, ammunition, webbing, backpack - upwards of 80 to 100 pounds) as well as work as a team to carry telephone poles. You start, and are told to continue along a sandy path (beach sandy) until you get to the finish. No one knows how far away that is.

The physical test is hard, but the mental portion is far, far harder. Not knowing how far one has to endure to horrible on the mind, though the more one is exposed, the mentally tougher he becomes.

Hockey applicability of SEAL and other special operations training? It's not the physical side. A hockey player can get in far better shape combining a solid half-marathon training program, olympic strength training, crossfit, and power skating (some cross-training combination). The benefits of special operations-style training are all mental. Buffalo is attempting to produce a mentally tough young group of players. And that's a very good step in the right direction, and a signal that Regier and Ruff understand the underlying causes of the failure of the 2008-2012 "core."

If you look at that map, part of Perry runs up under the Skyway to the left of the "A". You can just see the intersection there. Usually, there is some free parking there.

I dunno what it is, but after every interview with Grigs I'm developing more and more of a man-crush on him. He's confident, laid back and funny, and is gonna be a great interview to go along with being a great player (I believe).

Any guesses on the beach where the SEAL training is taking place? Something near FNC...maybe Gallagher, maybe some private NFTA land. I might just happen to be going for a morning jog and all of the sudden...funny seeing you here Zemgus!

Are the boys being put up in a hotel? Does Lindy have a room right in the middle of them all? I have this image of a barracks inside FNC. Maybe on the next round of renovations...

I don't understand why this isnt more popular in the NHL. You're definitely correct in the team building part. These guys are thrown together from all over the world for a few days to show their stuff and many havn't even met each other before. Throwing SEAL training at them off the bat goes a long way at creating a camaraderie and team atmosphere very quickly.
I think the training in attention to detail can translate nicely into sports as well and may help them as they develop the little things they will need for the pro game.
It should also instill a sense of not wanting to let your teammates down. If you sandbag it in SEAL training, they like making an example of you by pulling you off to the side so that you can rest, while the rest of your team has to make up for your slack while you watch. It's amazing how much more powerful that is over just yelling at someone and it creates a real sense of responsibility for one's actions.
