Traverse City Prospect Tournament

It's coming!

I'm thinking of taking a day or two off work this year to make a trip up to catch a few games. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I remember correctly, do teams typically stop playing certain players at anytime during the tourny? I'de like to see as many of the players as possible.. If this is the case, what days would you say would be the best to make the trip?

The dates are set for Sept. 6-10..

Let me know what you guys think!

The only case of keeping a player out that I recall is Jake last year because he clearly dominated and they didn't want to risk injury.

Sun and Mon are probably your best bets both for seeing the players and also just the atmosphere.

We're (finally) lacking in major ready-to-go talent, so I don't think we'll see anybody get held out of games. Do we even have a roster of those coming/invited? I'm primarily hoping to see the newest guys, Moore and Lynch.

Wonder why Allen York isn't on the roster. From everything I've heard he was stellar at RPI last year.

I noticed that. I also don't see any of the college kids at camp. I suspect NCAA's restrictive rules are in play. Maybe someone knows the specific reason.

I'm pretty sure the college kids have to pay their own way, so they hardly ever go. Macster (or anyone), know anything about the invites? The roster looks like it will get owned, but that's why the play the games.

I'll do up a post for you guys on most of the invites. I know of a few of them pretty well. Give me until like tomorrow evening. This isn't going to be the year the boys win it, but with some solid performances we could be adding to out prospect depth.

I found myself saying "who's he?" after reading most of the names on the roster. I used to know almost all of the prospects at this tournament.

It would be nice to have a goalie on the roster who was actually a draft pick of the CBJ and not some random invitee

for some reason i don't think players play in the tournament more than once. It's just a theory, I haven't done any research but i've never seen anyone play more than once. Witch would explain why Theo Ruth was left off the list(because he played last year)

Probably but I think our defense will look pretty good with these 5 guys:

Blomqvist
Savard
Moore
Regner
Delisle

Hopefully they can focus on generating some scoring chances from the back-end and moving the puck up ice. I'm really glad Anton Blomqvist is making the trip to play—I think he'll surprise. I also think Matt Calvert is going to rack up some points. Should be fun to watch.

While the roster lacks the shiny top-end talent we've had in years past when you could go see Voracek and Mayorov and those types of guys, one thing that strikes me is how many of our mid-tier prospects are playing. I think this might give us a good idea of who, if anybody, that's not currently an upper echelon prospect might show up in the next year or two. Guys like Calvert, Kubalik and Regner might show that they've taken a step forward and are ready to move up a level or two, or that they've started to top out. The defense definately looks stronger just in terms of drafted v. undrafted players.

I think it's going to be an interesting set of games.

I decided to figure out who was in the post-draft dev camp, who will be in T.C. and who will be at both. Maybe somebody will find it of use somehow. Mostly it's 19 days until my T.C. trip and I need to find crap to do or I'll go nuts.
