Send that the next time you see someone making a Cbus has no hockey fans joke. I wanted to jump through the screen and punch someone if I saw the "Blue Jackets fans react to end of lockout (empty city street)" picture one more time.

Next year, we need to get about 100 of us to hold a giant banner facing the camera that says "**** off, Bruce Garrioch".

If they switched the first line with the second line, would have a problem? You said Dorsett with those players might work but if Dorsett is on the first line, God help us all.
I'm not a fan of Dorsett or Umberger on the first line. That said, I'm even more convinced that we have THREE second lines. You can switch them all you want. When it comes for forwards, nobody in the top nine really stands out as better than everybody else. Not yet, anyway.

Only MacKenzie looked to be gassed during the middle of practice. Everybody else I saw looked to be in good shape.

Johansen was being thrown around like a rag doll in corner drills by JMFJ and Wiz. Those two came to camp ready to play - tomorrow!

Johnson was strong in the dig the puck out of the corner drill. He has that low center of gravity and he aint moving. Moore looked good in the one on ones. Kid can skate and didn't looked like he missed a beat after concussion.

Had fun today. Good crowd. Lots of drills. Hate the lines but will withhold judgement until things settle down. Bob is smaller than I thought he would be and he looked nervous. Will be interesting how it all shakes out.

Does Bobrovsky wear 72 for a reason, or is he just yet to be issued an actual NHL jersey number?

That's the number he picked. Don't remember why off the top of my head, but it might have had to do with a player from the Lokomotiv who died.

Thanks! Just seemed like a high number for a goalie. Makes more sense now.

You would have broad support in the Ottawa area, trust me.

In the interview he said that there's no any particular reason, he just likes the number.

I came away less than impressed but that's probably because of the caliber of player we have at the moment and it was just the first practice.

The only one who sparked was Atkinson. Dubinsky, Foligno, Umberger, Johansen, and Anisimov didn't exactly look like world beaters. Our defense looked like they were ready to go, though which is good.

Mason looked better than Bobrovsky. That's less a positive about Mason and more a negative about Bobrovsky. I too noticed that Bobrovsky looked smaller than 6'2". He was playing pretty far back in his crease.

Granted it was only a few hours and they weren't going full out. We'll have to see. I did like what I saw from Brassard. He was good along the boards, his passes were crisp, and he was hustling. Gillies also looked good (better than Boll and Dorsett IMO).

A lot of guys came away surprised by the pace of the practice. Hopefully by this time next year they will be so used to working hard that it'll be "business as usual."

Dorse looked good as did brass. Mase looked a lot better than I thought he would. Bob didn't look bad for just getting off a plane from Russia. Gonna have to be a team of hard workers.

It's early. I give everyone a few days of doing drills together and understanding how each other plays again and the goalies will start to adjust and hopefully get into a rhythm.

One thing I'm noticing from watching the post-practice videos is that it appears that Dorse has finally grown eyebrows!! Our boy is growing up! *hopefully someone besides me has noticed this over the years

Anyway I'm psyched to see the boys back and it's great to see such a large turnout!

Bob basically just got in town a day or so ago, so guessing jet lag was reason he looked off...just like Nikitin did

There's a rule that says all Flyers goalies who get railroaded by their own fans have to wear it.



Roman Cechmanek refused to honor this, and was out of the league for good a year later. Coincidence?
