Vermette and Voracek - yes but no Umberger
but it did include most of the other forwards (that aren't hurt) that are in camp.
On the blue line, I remember Hejda and a bunch of youngsters.
Mason and Garon were both listed.
However, the list had 20 skaters listed, 13 forwards and 7 d. Two have to be dropped from the list.
I need to add a quote from Hitch's presser last night "Everyone's got all these owies going on." I think he was referring to all teams in the league, it just struck me as very funny - thought I'd share.
I'd also like to give praise to the Pittsburgh and Nashville team sites for having pre-season game highlights. Boo to Minny and our own CBJ. The games are taped. They aren't on TV. The least you people could do would be to put the highlights on the website.
I wonder if the ice crew is having pre season tryouts also. 12 ice scrapers?! And not a very good ratio either! With the games not being televised, its annoying to see the tv timeouts....especially when they come out and pretty much zamboni the ice with 12 people, then they come out AGAIN 1 minute later to do it all over again, as if 100 people were on the ice!
Wonder what the attendance will be tonight, I think last night might have had 6k in attendance. And I dont know if this is just from my stand point being in the upper bowl, but was the PA obscenely loud last night? It was actually painful to the ears at times. "Uhh, guys, theres 6k people here, you can take the volume off 11, we most certainly can hear you!"
Hopefully it will be a decent game for our full price tickets, last night was a nice beat down to watch, lets just hope it doesnt get reversed.
Nik is gonna play, huh? Figures. I got a game to go to and won't be back to listen until later. Will one of you...please...update those of us who are forced to read to get our CBJ fix?? (thank you in advance)
