    What youngsters are making their clubs this camp as it comes to an end. Who are the tweeners/injury callups? Who do you foresee maybe making an impact as well?

    For the Wild, Pouliot is hanging around still and O'Sullivan(injured) might be kept on the roster, although I'm not sure how that works with the new CBA.

    For Montreal young guys that have won their spots are

    higgins
    Plekanec
    Latendresse
    Hossa

    Plekanec, hossa had big question marks going into camp but both have earned their spots on this team.
    While higgins can be sent to hamilton, while latendresse could go back to junior its upto management what happens to this guys.

    Now hainsey might get 7th defencemen spot if habs don't pickup anyone on waivers.

    Streit is also fighting for that 7th spot.
    Perezhogin also fighting for time with Pleks, Hossa, Higgins and Latendresse.

    Obviously, Brown, Gleason and Cammalleri. Clarke, Giuliano and Grebeshkov as the 1st call ups. Maybe hauser if Labarbera or Garon gets injured.

    McClement may end up on the 2nd line in St. Louis, Woywitka is also doing well and Colin Hemingway is still in camp too.

    NJ still has Zach Parise who will start the season.
    Other prospects doing well are Barry Tallackson, Adrian Foster. Cam Janssen and Ryan Murphy also played exhibition games. Tuomas Pihlman, Ilkka Pikkarainen and Alex Suglobov also played.

    Back-up job still undecided between Ari Ahonen and Scott Clemmensen.

    Luc Bourdon could very well be Vancouver's #6 defenceman as an 18 year old this year.

    Big weekend for Anaheim's prospects that are left in training camp:

    Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry have been the best offensive players for Anaheim all pre-season. They have each played all 6 games so far, Perry with 3 goals and 3 assists and Getzlaf with no goals but 7 assists.

    Chris Kunitz has played well with 4 points in 4 games, he is now 26 and has nothing left to learn in the AHL. He likely has earned a third line spot in Anaheim.

    Zenon Konopka has likely won the fourth line center spot for the Ducks. He is an agitator that will do anything it takes to win.

    Dustin Penner an unknown a year ago suddenly has a great shot at making the NHL this season. The 6'4 240 pounder is a very intriguing prospect for the Ducks. He could use one more year in the AHL to round out his game.

    Curtis Glencross remains in camp due to his willingness to skate hard every shift and throw some of the best bodychecks I have ever seen. One more year in the AHL and he will be ready for third line duty.

    Aaron Rome is in a battle with AHL veteran Joe DiPenta for the last defensive spot available on the Ducks roster. Though another year in the AHL wouldn't hurt Rome, he is very poised and ready for NHL duty.

    Ilya Bryzgalov has earned the backup goalie position behind Giguere with the release of Steve Shields today. He has had a pretty good camp and is ready to be an NHL goalie.

    Michael Wall has had a good camp and was rewarded with an entry contract by the Ducks yesterday. He immediately becomes 3rd in goaltending depth for Anaheim and will likely be the starter for Portland of the AHL.

    Jeff Carter: Is still on track to move to Peter Forsberg's right wing. A lot of expectations for him

    Mike Richards: Has been unbelievable so far. Centering a line with Mike Knuble and John Sim that looks great, seams to be set for the season as a scoring line.

    RJ Umberger: Has looked very strong so far, and has made his case. If the Flyers didn't have such disproportionate center depth, he'd definitely make the team. With Kapanen's injury, he seems to be fighting against another youngster, Patrick Sharp for a spot which I could see him getting. Either way, he'll see time with the Flyers anyway as he appears to be the first injury call up.

    Antero Niittymaki: Set to start the season as Robert Esche's backup, but I see him splitting time with Esche fairly evenly until the Olympics. After that, whoever is playing better will get the #1 spot. He could really knock on Esche's door this season.

    Thomas Vanek: lock as a first liner
    Ryan Miller: I'm not sure if he's still HF eligible or not but he'll probably be the starting goalie, at least a 1a/1b type deal.
    Paul Gaustad: has probably won a job as a 4th line center


    Jason Pominville: has had a strong camp and there's a pretty heated discussion about him right now. Waiver issues are also a problem and he'd have to start on the 4th line but could get some PP time as well if he makes it.

    Doug Janik: probably an injury call up.

    Prucha, Lundqvist, Tyutin and Dom Moore are locks for the NYR. Jarkko Immonen, Maxim Kondratiev, Thomas Pöck and Ryan Hollweg are fighting for 2-3 spots.

    Ray Emery: Has actually looked great in preseason and has the backup job.

    Andrej Meszaros/Christoph Schubert: Meszaros has looked great, but Schubert has to go through waivers and the Sens probably don't want to lose him. Pothier is maybe being showcased so both can stay.

    2nd & 3rd line spots will go to Pavel Vorobiev and Rene Bourque.

    2nd and 3rd D pairing spots will go to Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook. They should both be played similar minutes with both getting chances on the PP.
