It's the way of life in the AHL. Heck, when the Bears won the Cup in 1997, the home opener the following season featured the Hamilton Bulldogs as our opponent. Their starting goalie was J. F. Labbe, who had taken the Bears to the Cup a few short months earlier.

With the exception of Peter Vandermeer (what the hell were they thinking), I'm happy with the free agent signings, and the Caps have a good bunch of young players coming through, so I'm pretty pumped up for the opener. Not crazy about opening with two weekends on the road, but they'll have plenty of support for those games.

PSU, thanks for starting a new thread for this season

some comments by Hanlon about Fleischmann, RW, and camp

also, "Hanlon said he anticipates the Caps making their first cuts a day or two before Sept. 21. "

I assume Arsene will be wearing the C, but perhaps Laing will be wearing a letter in Hershey

Leone's 9/15 Caps training camp article
Interesting quote by Hanlon regarding Flash as far as keeping him playing a position he has been playing at (LW)

Quote:
In the wake of last season's dazzling-dominating playoff performance, it's hard to imagine what more the third-year pro has to prove in the AHL. But the Caps are deep at left wing, and head coach Glen Hanlon snuffed speculation that Fleischmann might switch to right wing.

"No, I want him to come here and play his best," Hanlon said.

"Because of the season he had and how well he played in the playoffs, I think everything you read is that he is projected to move into this lineup. I think there's pressure that comes with that when you're 22 years old. I don't want to add on, have him try to play another position."

Having Clymer on D opens a spot on the wing. If Flash starts the season with the caps, gets sent down after a few games and is the first callup if Semin or Ovechkin misses a game then I think thats a pretty good situation for him. We seem very very deep this year, which I like.

We will know more when Hershey's camp opens later this week. Players I assume will be at Day One of Hershey camp, until we hear otherwise:

The 7 players sent from the Caps, plus 3 Washington signed not on Caps tc roster, plus Hershey signings (plus any more assignments from the Caps):

F: Johansson, Robitaille, Stefanishion, Taticek, Tenute, Werner; Hershey signing Hendricks
D: Arsene, Byrne and Pokulok; plus the Hershey signings: Engelland, Grover, Sloan
G: Machesney

Also, here is a link to the most recent Leone article about Hershey, focusing on Giroux and Wiseman moving to the Bears from Hartford

Neat.

Strung, I was just coming to post that news, very interesting about Dovgan.

Here's Leone's article about recent Bears' signings, as well as Dovgan coming to training camp.

Forward Brendan Bernakevitch with Bears contract
Defenseman Busenberg signed to an AHL/ECHL contract
Defensemen Jeff State and Dovgan (non-contract invitees from what I can tell)

Also, if anyone is going to the game in Hershey on Sunday, Leone writes that Kolzig, Ovechkin, Elias and Brodeur are expected in the respective line-ups.

Wow, that is pretty cool. Wouldn't hurt Dovgan's dev to get him over to Hershey. Though there are a lot of rookie D already there...Pokulok/Schultz/Hunt and I'm forgetting someone now, lol.

Pokulok, Schultz, and Hunt are the only ones. Well, theyre the only Caps prospect rookies in the AHL, which are the only ones as far as I'm concerned. on Forward they have Stefanishion and Werner who are rookies though. A 4th rookie prospect on D wouldn't hurt, plus MacNeill after juniors this year if he's still in the system by that time.

"Hershey Bears training camp doesn't officially begin until today, but 18 players were on Hersheypark Arena ice yesterday engaged in an unofficial workout.

Among them were Louis Robitaille, Joey Tenute, Dean Arsene, Jonas Johansson and Deryk Engelland, all participants in the whirlwind 2005-06 Calder Cup season."

Leone writes Klepis may play center in Hershey this season

The news about Dovgan really surprised me. Not sure I'm going to believe it until he actually shows, but it will be interesting to see what happens.

Looking promising about Dovgan - the Bears site roster has been modified - looks like the tc roster now (the players still with the Caps have been temporarily removed and invites are added). I added a * for players with Bears contracts and ** for the players I believe are training camp invites; please update/correct; I wonder if they are bringing in another goalie just for the weekend until Daigneault or Cassivi joins camp
