Saturday Open Thread

The time for teary goodbyes is nearly upon us as Development Camp draws to a close, but not before the final scrimmage of the week and a few "Fan Fest" events out at Kettler.

If you can't make it out to K-Plex, EMac and an OFBer or two (or three... or four...) will be live-blogging the day's action starting at 10:00, and if you do make it out there, stop by and introduce yourself to me - I'll be the remarkably good-looking guy in the white patterned button-down, jeans and brown boots.

And, of course, any and all observations about Camp (other than challenges to any assertion made in that last sentence) are welcome in the comments.

Update: I snapped this pic and thought I'd pass it along.

According them we're already above the cap. Could shit hit the fan come late July?

I am told there was an imposter sombrero guy at the fan fest today.

@Mobsky

the hockey buzz team cap number for the Caps includes Pothier's 2.5 million. Everyone is assuming that Pothier will be a long term injury candidate, which will allow the Caps to exceed the salary cap by 2.5 million to roster a replacement.

They also include Giroux, but have Schultz as a "prospect".

I have the Caps with $1,018,889 left under the cap.

I was there for the third period to the shootout. Anybody get video of Bouchard's shot? Impressive. Damned impressive.
I was also surprised by Mestery. He's a big kid, and surprisingly light on his feet for his size.

How many OFBs are there?! Are they breeding amongst each other?

i had the 11 a.m. slot this morning and was looking forward to nothing more than watching a little practice scrimmaging. Breaking my fibula last night at Kettler while playing in the 3-on-3 league didn't allow that to happen.

Nice of Kettler to have in-house medics, by the by. Waiting for nearly 1/2 an hour for the EMTs to show up didn't suck at all.
