You guys, there's a Penguins hockey game on today. Sorry to jump off topic, but that's pretty amazing.

I too enjoy the freedom of being in a seat I want , not herded around. Section 102 at the top; center ice!
Yesterday, the defense drill ; Brooks and Paul Martin were money! And, sucking wind at the end. :)

With Sid's group practice, they had to do gassers. Wow! This was at the very start of their practice.
The fans gave all of the guys unprompted applause for completing. Felt very bad for goalies, Tomas V was one of them. Dupuis finished first in his group; impressive!!

I was watching the penguins group of goalies; nice group. Maybe I missed them, since I was at the consol, but was penguin media tweeting about the saves made by Flower ??

Thanks Penguins for opening practice; start of turning the page from last June.

Blysma says seniority will not play a role in determining who wins roster spots. Fantastic if true...

Thanks for the info netwolf, great to hear your (and everyones) opinions on the players. Has anyone seen if JM has had any influence on overall team play? If there were no clues in camp then I'd love to hear about the game tonight in terms of strategy and style.

Not pens related, but if anyone is interested I saw Matt Cooke today in the Wild scrimmage game, he had a nice goal and a cool no look spin around Crosby type assist. Apparently he is having a pretty good camp and is fitting in nicely over there.

So by that logic Adams should be in Wheeling or lower.

Thanks Netwolf! Your reports are always insightful.

Sounds like Dea is working his butt off to make this team. Hard to imagine, but I wonder if he'd sign a contract and then be sent back to juniors?

Does Jeffrey have the leg up on Vitale for the 4th line C spot?

Glass' 1.1m salary is really starting to look expensive with all these guys at half the price competing with him. Also wish we hadn't signed Adams. He's taking a spot from someone who could contribute at more than just PK, and I can't see Shero cutting him loose or Blysma holding to his word about vets not getting prefference.

What's the best possible bottom 6 from this collection of players?
