Look for footage from interviews like this one all week long on Summerfest Live! First broadcast is at 5:30pm today. pic.twitter.com/sSEKysTFnt
Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up that as part of Summerfest, throughout the week CanesVision will have a feature video on every player in prospects camp, including live interviews with members of the organization.

I'm thinking about going Friday or Saturday, I'm guessing it will be pretty boring drills and stuff until then. Saturday looks like it could be fun with a scrimmage. Since I boycotted attending any hockey related events last season I am kinda jonesing at this point, I may head out earlier in the week.

I do look forward to the overreactions tonight. Might not get them here, but they'll be on other boards or FB.

"OMG can't believe we wasted #5 overall on this guy, he's terrible" or "Lindholm might be the best player on the team right now guys, he's that good". We might even get them both.

This stream has pretty good picture quality but the audio sucks (don't mind me. I'm a dumbass). Wish they would just show the practice.

hmm, kid has already played for 3 different teams in 2 different leagues in the last year. Quite the oddity considering he went from the QMJHL to the EJHL. Didn't even know a player could go from Major Junior to Junior A considering they can't go from Major Junior to NCAA.

Forwards worked primarily on puck movement and shooting drills.

Of the forwards, I was most impressed with Lindholm, Karlsson and Rask.

Lindholm does a lot of little things right. Quick, hard release even though he's not quite as accurate as he could be. He catches bad passes extremely well and turns them into quality shots with ease. Catches passes extremely well on the backhand. Makes nice, flat, soft passes and crisp touch-passes. I don't think I'd call him elite by NHL standards at any one thing, but he had a good NHL-level skill set.

Karlsson has tremendous skill. Skating, passing, puck handling are all very smooth. I could see him dominating on big ice. But he is slight of frame, and from what I understand the physical game is his big challenge so the verdict is still out.

Rask is a step down in smoothness from the other two, but still looked alright. Big, lanky, with a nice touch on the puck. Picked some corners and looked good on his skates.

I wasn't bowled over by anyone else.

Are they not streaming the defenseman? Wasn't able to catch the forwards earlier.

The defensemen did basically the same kind of puck drills, and I'm not inclined to draw conclusions on a defenseman from that kind of drill.

I will say Biega looked good, and Murphy frankly looked like he was half-assing it.

Hey Canes fans - Devils fan here. Just got back from the forwards drills, thought I'd give you some of my thoughts:

I came away most impressed with the undrafted Sergey Tolchinsky. The most skilled player on the ice by a fair margin. Quick hands, hard and accurate shot, and a great skater. I still can't believe a guy with his skillset went undrafted. He was consistently sniping the corners and showed incredible hands and puck control on more than one occassion. The kid has 1st line potential.

Karlsson was probably the best skater. Speed, edge control, and balance. His skating was just realy impressive.

Lindholm looked ok, I'd say as advertised. Solid skater, decent shot, soft hands. He's got a few years before being an impact player at the NHL level, but he definitely does all the little things right.

Brock McGinn and Victor Rask also looked very good.

Tolchinsky's biggest hurdle is being a generous 5'9".

Yea he may struggle with that, but I liken him to a Sergei Samsonov type. He looks a lot like a Yakupov, honestly. Same skating and puckhandling style.

Tolchinsky's name has been mentioned a couple of times to one glowing review already. first i've heard of him and will be interested to hear more about him. is it really only his size that has over shadowed his skill and resulted in him going undrafted?


EDIT: has anyone seen this fella anymore or have any more to add? opinions?

it seems like lindholm, rask and tolchinsky are the stand outs so far. yes/no, maybe so?

Thanks I was just wondering because I went to training camp in January thinking they'd be open and they weren't. That was not fun.
