That's only slightly more mature than "You're not the boss of me."

uh, i didn't get to see any actual hockey action, but they were playing some sort of ultimate football (?) on the inline surface when i showed up... think ultimate frisbee with an american football... couldn't really recognize anyone except kanko... he's kinda nuts during this as well... hehehe... kinda amusing to see some of these guys who can skate, puckhandle, and shoot so well on ice try another "sport"... the athleticism of some of them definitely transferred to this game, but others looked kinda "unathletic" (for lack of a better term) too... pro'ly the europeans who've never thrown a football in their lives... hehe...

Don't tell 'em I told you but a certain web site has pix up. If you googled the initials for Let's Go Kamping! You might just find 'em.

Kings Development Camp (Day 1)

Konstantin Pushkarev - Patrick O'Sullivan - Anze Kopitar

Did nothen but surprise me. They were 3 of the best 6 on the ice. They all played on the same line and they turned the defense and goalies infront of them inside out. They all see the ice equally as good and they all have rockets for shots. I didnt have confidence in them at all until i actually saw them play. O'Sullivan is fast and he just straight lurks on the ice he sorta reminds me of a small Rick Nash the way he skates and lurks on the ice.

SURPRISES OF THE DAY - Peter Harrold, Kid was by far the best defensemen on the ice. He was breaking the puck out under pressure well, he was giving tape to tape passes, he has a nice shot , he sees the ice extremely well , he was really smart on when he carried the puck in deeper into the zone. Just an all around great player. Reminds me of John Micheal Liles.
Ned Lukacevic, he is almost a spitting image of Konstantin Pushkarev. They even look alike ....lol . He is much stronger on his feet and he can fly on the ice hes extremely fast. And is equally as talented as Pushkarev little grittyer.

DISAPPOINTMENTS OF THE DAY - Brian Boyle, even though KingsPawn(who i was with all day today) might disagree. He has size and a decent shot, but he doesnt see the ice well, hes not strong on his feet. Hes not a very good skater he seems like he is going to tip over everytime he comes down the ice and his hands arnt very soft. He skates a tiny bit better then George Parros. But i would say he is George Parros with a shot. <- Flame away hahah

- Danny Roussin, Anyone that was there will agree. He is the only player that stuck out in a negative way. He was giving bad passes , missing the net by a mile and just looked totally horrible.

BRIGHT FUTURE: Johnathon Bernier , Daniel Taylor were clearly the best 2 goalies out there. Bernier is really young and hes a little shook from the expereince but he is so focused and hes trying the hardest out of all the goalies there to understand the goalie coach and learn all the proper techniques. Daniel Taylor shocked both KingsPawn and I. He`s about double the player he was last camp. He looked extremely good.
Patrik Hersley, he is a very good skater , has intimidateing size but he didnt break the puck out very well. He reacted good under pressure to gain the possesstion but when he made his passes they wernt exactly on point.
Constantin Bruan, he is a good skater also, hes not to bad in the size department either. He is a little bit like Hersley but his breakout passes were much better.
Trevor Lewis, I dont think the kid stopped skateing 1 time. At the end of the drill when the players were coasting/glideing he was non stop full speed until the end of the drill. Everytime the whistle blew to go to the coach he was sprinting to be the first one there. And his skills are very good also. He has a nice shot, doesnt slap shot alot but he has a nice snap shot.

Gabe Gauthier, hes really small. But he is really smart on the ice and sees the ice well. He has a big problem though. Hes fat, so he needs to cut weight so that he can be faster on the ice. But he also has a great shot and hes pretty smart.

Thanks for the INFO... Today was the first day, they probably havent played much organized Hockey since their seasons were over. I think it will only improve and we will see much more skill by Wednesday.

Pushy-Kopitar-O'Sullivan, Sounds like a great FUTURE KING LINE

Before we grade the prospects and decide whether or not they are NHL ready, just remember, its just practice. PRACTICE.

I just want to make sure nobody comes away from reading Boyle being disappointing to think that he's a bust or anything like that after reading someone's report from a practice.

But I hear ya. Some players will look better and stand out above others in a practice.

As Sir Iverson said... "It's just PRACTICE!"
