RNH was talking about his 2 straight days of travel to get back from Ufa te other day. So I assume he will be back very soon if he isn't already.

Is Horcoff going to show up late and only wear NHLPA practice jerseys out of spite?

I thought Hemsky came back to Etown weeks ago. Did he leave again?

Nice to know that our Captain is so dedicated to the team. No worries he'll probably be one of the best conditioned guys at camp proving once again that conditioning doesn't mean much when you play non physically and have no hands.

It will be interesting to see if SS is a smaller/faster SS or a bit bigger/stronger SS. It seems like in past years he has struggled to find a balance that works for him. Hopefully he found that balance this offseason and didnt spend all his time in Klagenfurt eating Topfenstrudel and Germknödel.

After the crap he spewed during CBA negotiations all thread should be dedicated to bashing Horcoff.

I would think so, especially with the injury to Jones.

Got the sense they didn't want to entirely fleece OKC of all their top players. MPS and Hartski should get call ups closer to Sunday after the games from the 11-13th. Maybe Teubert as well? There are 15 forwards confirmed coming to camp, you'd have to think this list is somewhat accurate:

1. Hall
2. RNH
3. Eberle
4. Hemsky
5. Gagner
6. Yakupov
7. Smyth
8. Horcoff
9. Belanger
10. Eager
11. Hordichuk
12. Petrell
13. Paajarvi
14. Hartikainen
15. Jones (Injured)

Don't know whether the 15 confirmed was including Jones with the injury. If not, perhaps Lander gets a look at camp.

Stauffer was suggesting perhaps Vandevelde. Makes sense. He likely has a lower ceiling than Lander but can likely fit in better on the bottom line. He wont make the team, but an invite to camp could work.

Any word on Hemsky? I thought he left Pardubice a little while ago, did he come back to Edmonton?
