Development Camp Open Thread

Time to go to camp! I figured I'd put up an open thread for any and all things D. Camp-related. Who are you most excited to see? What are you looking for? When are you going? If it's about the Camp, feel free to discuss it here.

Im not going but Id love to hear how Dogvan looks, Im also interested to see how Varlamov and Neuvirth look. Since they are the future of the Caps goaltending.

Any info would be great.

Varlamov looks real good, very quick. Neuvirth looks like he's about fourteen.

Tarik's first update from camp.

Wish I could see Bouchard. Sounds like he could grow quickly into the Fleischman/Fehr that never materialized?

would like to see Alzner as well.

Kind of afraid to see Backstrom...he's been hyped up for so long.

1) Backstrom is the player you guys should be most interested in. As he's the only one out there already penciled in to play opening night for the Caps, he better appear to be head and shoulders above the other guys out there this week.
2) Funny about 'anonymous' comment on Neuvirth Remember seeing him in hershey last year and thinking the same thing. This kid can't be more than 12!

1) From Tarik's interview with Hanlon:"With Pollock and Poti and Boumedienne, at least going into training camp, we've got three power play defensemen".
2) Interesting that he didn't mention Green in that list.

JP, when are YOU going to camp?

JP said...

Actually, I'll be there tonight. Stop by and say hey if you see me - I'm wearing a white polo w/ black stripes and greenish/brownish pants (btw, I didn't think the combination looked awful until I had to just describe it).

Going tomorrow night. Too bad. And good luck getting in with that hideous-sounding outfit (just kidding, okay maybe not).
