I don't know the place but like every other camp we had in the past, there has to be a place for spectators....

I'm a little skeptical about a goalie named four eyes....

Torp was there last year. What will be interesting is to see how he looks after that year he just lost with his injury....

As far as his skills, Torp and Weber kinda looked alike when I saw them last year. Though Torp seems to have that nastiness Weber doesn't have while he's not the tallest. Went from some open ice hits from time to time. Though because of his size was overpowered in some occasions, I had to say while Weber had his moments, so did Torp. Looked fine last year.

Again, can't wait to see what will be the repercussions as far as his injury is concerned.

Same here. Won't start a conspiracy theory 'cause there could be tons of great explanation for him not being there, but you really thought he would've been since he openly want to come in NA.

Really dissapointed and I hope we'll have some answers.

I'll try to get one through somebody, though he's probably better at giving me stuff for the practices than some internal stuff like that...

Quick question here. Can Trunev legally go directly to the AHL or ECHL? Even if it's legal is it a good idea or will it harm is development?

Here's some guys worthy to bring to camp

Mathieu Tousignant
Brings offensive and grit but poor skater and small for a 3/4 liner
Alex Beaton
Tons of offensive skills but no toolbox
Robert Mayer
From potential first rounder to undrafted, what a drop but potential.
Dave Labrecque
Made out of glass but very skilled forward.
Jonathan Bonneau
Had tremendous playoff, 3/4 liner in the making
Pierre-Alexandre Vandall
Bad attitude but could blossom
Alexandre Néron
Sooo green but who knows!
Tommy Tremblay
A guy you want in your team , cant be scared.
Travis Stacey
Tough guy , legit brawler
Ashton Bernard
When our only tough guy is Bonneau, we could use a guy like him.
Thanks for the list.
Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't Vandall named "scholastic player of the month" several times last year? Where did you here ha has a bad attitude?

He can, but it's preferable for him to get NA exposure playing junior with guys his age first. If he's too strong for that level they can put him in Hamilton next year.

But is it a better option then staying in Russia? Because the junior team that picked him is pretty much worst then crap and I don't think he wants to play there. Isn't the level of play something like CHL < ECHL < AHL < RSL < NHL? Or if he stays there he's going to play for some junior russian hockey league?

So he's 18 years old.

This means that we don't have any other over-20 (and thus eligible for AHL and ECHL contracts) goalies potentially in the system, besides for Desjardins and Lacasse. Unless they invite some others to the rookie camp.

Our goalie depth.

Price
Halak

Denis
Desjardins

Lacasse
?

Mayer (if signed)
Missiaen
Quattrocchi (if signed)

They're huge kids and JP's not a stranger to dropping the gloves either... there's a youtube thing on a fight he had... the other guy's down and T's still pounding on him...

they certainly are worth a look-at...

As for no Trunev, it may be a visa issue or something. Those are sometimes hard to get.

a 91 born would be technically 16-17 years old. In this case he is 17 years old only.

I've been doing the reports for the past 3 years now, and for the first time this year I'm either not on vacation or not between a job so I can't make it....and seriously it pisses me off....

But I'll be there on the last day of the camp on Saturday which should be a good day but being the last day players will be tired.

Though they may have the scrimmages on that day or the day before but if I remember correctly, guys were just done on the last day.

So I'll hope we'll have reports prior to Saturday so we can have a better analysis on the players. Videos would be cool as well.

Anybody going?

As far as the schedule I said I was going to provide, well my friend just sent me the press release the Habs sent to the journalists so nothing that you guys don't know already.

Only new info I have would be that the exact name and the address of where its at is:

Centre Sportif Candiac – Les 2 Glaces (10 rue Radisson, Candiac) on the South Shore.

That would be it....

It sucks for the fans but it's understandable for the guys. It will be the first time that we don't have a full weekend of prospects. Still, the guys didn't have anything left in tank for those last days.

Let's hope that they'll give a great show on Saturday, especially for the new acquisitions, I'll be concentrating on those guys.

Can't wait to see how my "man" will do this time...... I don't want to be on his case again.....
