Rookies have lockers near vets

Quote:
Loose pucks. Given that there may be as many as 10 new players, including one returnee in Chris Therien, in the dressing room who weren't there in May 2004, when the playoffs ended, the Flyers have strategically placed their key younger players next to new veteran acquisitions: Patrick Sharp will sit next to Peter Forsberg, Jeff Carter next to Eric Desjardins, Mike Richards next to Keith Primeau, R.J. Umberger next to Mike Rathje, and Joni Pitkanen next to Derian Hatcher... . Physicals are Sept. 12. Camp opens the next day... . Former Flyers assistant coach E.J. McGuire was named director of NHL Central Scouting yesterday.
Guess RJ has a shot of making the club, maybe force a Brashear out.

Wow, that would be a blessing. Imagine a fourth line with Umberger Richards and Stevenson? That would be pretty good, actually.

Thought I suspect it's just for camp.

I know Umberger is a center

In the grand scheme of things, it's really not important who gets dressed next to who. The bigger part of that article is that Hitchcock's contract isn't over after this season.

I thought that the rookies would all be at a card table in the other room.

I dont know, you want to avoid any cliques and mixing in the rookies will help them settle in and get involved in the banter.

Every little bit helps.

well... Hitchcock does sort of encourage a veteran clique with the 8 player committee or whatever it is that he creates to consult with coaching staff on any team issues.

this year?

Primeau
Desjardins
Johnsson
Kapanen
Gagne
Forsberg
Hatcher
Zeus

This is the exact reason I want these 2 paired together. Joni got run alot last NHL season. If Hatcher is on the ice, that will probably stop.

Theres a big difference to Hitch wanting to do that and the players deciding themselves they are big enough to have their own commitee.

You're not. In our case, it will be beneficial:

Mike Richards next to Keith Primeau -- some consider Mike to be future Flyers captain material so who better to have him sit by than Preems?

Joni Pitkanen next to Derian Hatcher -- Derian can show Joni a few tricks of the trade so when people decide to take a run at him he can defend himself. This is exactly the guy Joni needs right now. Three concussions last year, if he is paired with Derian that will stop completely.
