Sestito makes it 4-3 Wolf. Tucker is getting lit up.

Filatov is cherry picking when he could be useful helping his D. Aulin is playing really hard on both sides of the ice.

Wolfe wins 5-3. Garon played the full game without giving up a goal.

How did Aulin look? I think he can surprise and sneak into the fourth line center spot when all is said and done.

Skraut, would you be available to do PBP on the TV telecast?

He really looked good I thought. Was always buzzing around the play, forechecking just as hard as he was backchecking. He even had one play where he poked a lob pass out of the air with his stick preventing a breakaway for the other team.

Team Wolfe looked very lackluster the first half, just didn't seem to have much motivation, and were completely outplayed by team Pizzuti. Don't want to blame it on Tucker, he's an 18 year old getting his first taste of NHL shots, but once Mirasty scored it was like a switch flipped on Team Wolfe. It was if they were all embarrassed to be off the scoresheet when he was on it, and they completely hit another gear.

Very exciting games all around. As I mentioned Garon had a shutout, wasn't tested a bunch in the first half by Team Wolfe, then didn't have to face the same pressure from team Pizzuti that Lalande did, but was sharp when needed.

Got down there for most of the final game. It was a blast. Great showing by the fans to fill the place.

Did anyone else catch Commodore smash Filatov into the boards and then ride him to the ice?

Other observations/thoughts:

Voracek and Filatov both look bigger.
Sigalet is smaller than I thought. Skated and played well though.
Chimera was forcing things.
Modin looked healthy.
When he faced shots, Garon looked good. He is big in the net.
Aulin is clearly competing and trying to make an impression.
Juice was stickhandling around everyone.
Clitsome played pretty well.

Unfortunately I will not be able to make it during the week but will try again next weekend.

For anyone that was there for the first part, how did Picard look? I am pulling for him as a 4th line dark horse this camp.

I tried following him during the drills and he seemed to be doing ok. Didn't really do anything to stand out during the game though. I do remember him getting stood up with the puck coming into the zone, but that was the only time he really did anything memorable, sadly. Am really pulling for him too.

Had fun, stayed for both practices and games.
Commodore did get Filatov pretty good in the corner. He probably told Filatov to get used to meeting big defensemen.

Picard looked good, nothing fancy, but hustled his ass off. Legein also looked in shape and played well.

Klesla did catch McBride with hiss head down and rocked him, surprised that McBride got up after that.

Jake looks noticably bigger as well as Brass and Filatov.

Moore is going to be good, it will be hard for the organization to allow him to develop slowly. Regner, Savard, Clitsome, Sigalet all showing signs that they could become good offensive defensemen.

Fight between Archibald and Harvey, was no slouch. Each landing a couple of facials before the takedown by Harvey.

I am assuming that he will be one of the guys that gets alot of time in the real preseason games. He can make his mark there.

Strange. I couldn't disagree more about Picard though Skraut. Every time he was on the ice he was right in the middle of it. He was buzzing around everywhere and really looked like a veteran player taking charge. He even got under the skin of the ultimate agitator (Dorsett) and at one point, it looked as though they were going to square off but Picard just skated off. Dorsett looked back at him as he was going to the bench and gave him the stink eye.

The games were great fun. My observations from both games:

-The first game was really tightly played and the score was close.
-Brassard wants the puck all the time and he just finds people. He made Dorsett look like a 30 goal scorer today. That kid is special.
-see above RE: Picard
-Modin looked healthy and strong.
-Moore IS a great skater. The kid looks like he can skate as fast as he wants to. Right on top of the ice this guy.
-Roy was awful--gawd-awful. Slow, gets beat on the wall, doesn't seem like he can sort it out. Let's just hope it was first day rust...
-Voracek looks like a veteran player. He is markedly improved in size, poise and confidence with the puck. The guy was a standout.
-Filatov really tried at both ends. If/when he got batted around he just hung right in there. He scored a BEAUTY of a goal from and even better pass from Jake--batted it out of the air into the net. It was great.
-Pahlsson looked just average. Not really his type of game. RJ was the same.
-I thought Blunden and Sestito were both standouts. Sestito isn't the fastest skater in the world but is smart and has really good hands. Very physical. He makes Commodore look like an averaged sized player. The kid is huge.
-Blunden was strong on the puck and very physical. He seemed very aware and smart. I didn't see any laboring in his skating like Skraut did.
-Mayorov is fast and has loads of skill, but other than his move on the 2 on 1, he just doesn't really have a big chunk of the game.
-Plehkanov--I didn't really notice him much at all.
-I thought Legien really tried and was involved early in his game.
-the Russell Commodore pairing was a good one. I think it might be a keeper. I really liked how Russell was skating deep and trying to make things happen. I would rather see him do some of that than just skate like hell to the far blue line and then dump it like he has the last two years. He looks more confident.
-Dorsett was a standout. Working hard as usual and smart.
-Boll looked like he tried hard this summer and improved his puck skills. Made a nice steal which led to Sestito's goal.
-Calvert was very good and you can see how he would be a standout at a rookie tourney. He was very good. Makes plays, gets his nose dirty, works hard. Puck follows him around.

One guy that I caught my eye was Liffiton. Liffiton is an older player with experience overseas. He was a 63rd overall pick in Colorado in 2003...I liked what I saw of him today.

I don't think much needs to be said about Nash and Juice. As soon as they started to really play, it was game over. It didn't help that they shot on that poor little kid Tucker in the 2nd period. They owned the puck every time they were on the ice in the 2nd half of that game. Yes, Huselius hit the crossbar, but Nash DID score on his breakaway--(albeit on a jr. goalie ). Nash also hit a post.

The games were just a great idea. The owners were all really into it and were having fun with each other. Brass, Dorsett and Mason (and one or two others who I didn't know) came out and watched the 2nd game.

The 2nd game tomorrow is the championship game. Should be fun.

Good recaps, everyone. I was there for both games, and made a couple of notes, which I will share:

game 1

1. Picard - Looked a little out-of-control, like he was pressing a little. Not the body language I was hoping for. It's a good thing today was only the first day of camp and not the last, because he's not making the team if he plays like that.

2. Doug Lynch - Big guy, played really strong.

3. Dorsett - Scored a pretty goal, and really played strong the whole game. What I didn't understand, is if he's gonna get a look at #4 center, why did he play wing here?

4. Regner - looked really good. Scored a goal and battled hard.

5. Brass - looked like a #1 center. Kid is seriously "so good". Can't wait to get a real look at our #1 line, could be special.

6. Matt Caria - Was my underdog success of game 1. Every time I saw him, he was skating very well, great moves, good passer. Scored a beaut in the shootout. I'm gonna have my eyes on this kid. It's early, but I'm rooting for him to get signed to a minor league contract.

7. Klesla - looked really good. If he is gonna play like he did in the playoffs this season, watch out. You might finally like him!

8. Archibold - Fought, played tough, had a goal... the fight is exactly what I want to see out of people scrapping for a job.

9. Moore - gifted. We're lucky to have him. He's too young to play for us this year, but in 2 years? He's a lock.

game 2

1. Vorachek's hair - awesome

2. Chimmer/Murray/Modin - Modin skated hard and showed some speed. Hopefully it's not just because "He's not injured yet", as the guy in front of me pointed out. Chimmer and Murray were invisible.

3. Scott Tanski - Showed his speed and shot on the game's first goal, a flying wicked little wrister.

4. Filatov - you can tell this guy is a natural. he looks so effortless out there, gliding around then BAM, he's right where he needs to be to help score goals. Hopefully his defense is acceptable, because the sky's the limit blah etc etc etc ad nauseum

5. Jared Aulin - Played tough. Stood some guys up on the defensive end and showed strength. Hopefully he keeps that up.

6. Paul Bezzo - played poorly in his defensive zone. It reminded me of Rusty in seasons 1 and 2 where he would get so flustered trying to get the puck out of his own zone.

7. Nash - super stud. duh.

8. Juice - I had forgotten how gifted he is with the puck. It's truly amazing at times to see how he can embarrass people. Clitsome's goal was set up by a Juice steal and sweet pass to Nash.

It would be cool if Voracek grew a nice porn 'stache too (if he's able to).
