R&F,
Did you go to Monday's camp? I watched most of it and Boyle was awful. It sounds like he
has really stepped up his play. I have been ripped on the other Kings site, for even mentioning that he was slow. Thanks for the report
Yes sir. If you read my Report for Monday. I said that he was a huge disapointment and that he cant skate , cant see the ice well ect...But he honestly stepped it up after Monday. Hes even showing a little finesse in his touch. Im looking very forward to the game tommarow. Hopefully its not packed though

Enjoy Osprey
What makes you say O'Sullivan is a grouch? How does he act? What does he do? Why do you think he's a jerk?

Details, please! I want to know why you think that. Thanks.

Thanx for the article, it is nice to see a player that stuck with hockey after something like that. Playing hockey here in Canada i've seen many dads like that, (although never anything this bad), and usually it ends up that the kid, usually quite talented, just winds up saying "screw it" and quits. Good story.

P.S. Thanx a million for the writeups to everybody that has been doing them.

He's just upset that O'Sullivan didn't give him a hug and call him "bro."

Well I had been planning all week for going down today (Thursday) to watch the morning practices, and what happens? I end up in the freakin' hospital. Stupid appendix. Now I have to sit here and read everyone else's reports about the prospects (not that there's anything wrong with that, but I'd also like to formulate my own opinions). I'm pretty much screwed now since I have to go back to school the beginning of September, and the only Kings' games I'll get on TV will be on OLN or Vs. or whatever it is. I'm doubting the Kings will be on OLN much, so I'm in for another year of not watching Kings hockey for most of the year. Damn surgery. I can barely walk my abdomen/midsection hurts so much.

Give me a break. I was there - O'Sullivan didn't come off as anything other than a kid trying to focus on his work on the ice (the entire Kings brass was there watching for crissakes). What do you expect him to do? Pose for pictures and sign autographs of his Wild draft card? Some of you people could really benefit from being respectful of other people, namely 19 and 20 year old kids who are away from home trying to ensure they are able to earn a living doing what they have dreamt of for years.

He didn't smile at you and shake your hand. Who gives a ****. I wouldn't either.

And you're still claiming that he's a "grouch?"

Well, seeing that he signed AND gave you a stick, I would think you would give him the benefit of the doubt, but that's just me.

Is O'Sullivan going to be pencilled in to the 2nd line centre spot? Would make a wicked sleeper pick in a hockeypool.

He looked good to all of us there, but it's anyone's guess. Hopefully the Kings' staff feels the same way.

One thing I am not looking forward to is the bashing of Sully on this board and the "other" Kings board if he doesn't score 40+ goals and 80+ points next season.

I think that he's a shoe-in for the top two lines, but the position is anyone's guess. The team seems to think that he'd be a better winger (I tend to agree), though. I would guess that he'll play LW on one of the top two lines.

If you look at the Kings depth right now, it's pretty suggestive that O'Sullivan will be playing wing.

Potential Top-6 Centers (Need 2):
Conroy
McCauley
Cammalleri
O'Sullivan

Potential Top-6 Wingers (Need 4):
Frolov
Brown
Cammalleri
O'Sullivan
Thornton*
Avery*

Obviously, this can change if the Kings make any more significant acquisitions or deletions, but my money is still on O'Sullivan on the wing, and probably the left.

And Boyle was on defense for pretty much the whole camp when he normally doesn't play that position. What's your point?

I didn't know you were there, Beauty, Eh. It would have been cool to talk some hockey with you

Anyway, jtuzzi... O'Sullivan played wing pretty much the entire camp. I'm 99.9% sure he'll be getting 2nd line duty; he may even push Frolov later in the season and take #1 LW.
