Development camp stand-ins

That is, the opposite of a standout. Somebody who could be confused with a random unskilled person asked to "stand in" for a little while. Another way: who's been embarrassingly bad at development camp so far?

I present to you: Libor Sulak, whom the Wings signed out of the Austrian league.

Well, I'd say that Libor has about as soft of a touch as I do.

maybe he blocks shots. You just put him in whenever S. Weber is playing PP and he will be the human shield they need

Avs barely do any hockey so it's tough to look bad. But I was hoping for more puck skill from Cam Morrison.

He wasn't an embarrassment or anything but Simon Chen a Canuck invite looked like he didn't belong.

Showing a player doing an irrelevant drill when he's very clearly not even trying is rather cheap. Šulák was playing for the Czech Republic at the last World Championships so that he's probably a better player than 90 % of kids at those scrimmages.

If he's not trying then there's even more red flags in the guy. He makes himself look like a ****** hockey player AND that he thinks he's too good to give an effort.

Good for Libor!

In fairness, the other guys in the video doing the drill don't appear to be going at full speed either. Could be more than meets the eye here. Maybe they were instructed to not go at full speed.
