since pred303 seems to like the np.com board better and posted his report there , here is what he said.
a good scrimmage today...
no kariya,nichol, or zidlicky,all still out
goal scoring went like this;
1)Radulov from Allison and Legwand
2)(pp)Hartnell from Robitaille and Gamache
3)(4 on 4)Legwand from Stevenson and Hamhuis
4)(pp)Hamhuis from Markov and Legwand
5)(pp)Gamache from Robitaille
6)(6 on 4 pp)Gamache from Zanon and Robitaille
7)(pp)Stevenson from Legwand and Hamhuis
as you can probably tell from the scoring, Legwand,Robitaille,Gamache,Hamhuis,Stevenson, Radulov all had strong scrimmages. Game was tight and a defensive struggle 5 on 5, with Radulov scoring the only goal on a beautiful little breakaway..beat Mason for that one
the second period was all special teams work,and as you would expect the ice was really opened up,as was the scoring. In the center battle, not much out of Beech today, Perreault won every single faceoff and had a goal wiped off because of a quick whistle, and Robitaille excelled once they went to the pp work after so-so even strength work.
This team has so many good defensivemen.. and they kind of won the even strength scrimmage honestly... markov,timonen,hamhuis,weber, and suter seemed especially to all have good games
vokoun played well,as did mason and finley,rinne trailed the three of them today i thought
good practice day all around,now if we can just get those three guys back on ice that have missed time.
Why not? Trading a position of strength to address a weakness.
you can't go with all young guys. a Veteran presence would be nice. Perhaps you're thinking we'd get another veteran in return? I doubt it. Walker isn't worth enough to another team on his own to get the kind of center I'd want to replace him.
