    The toughest part about today was figuring out who is who. From where I was it was tough to get a good look at most of the players and there was no roster list available. and I forgot to take a note pad so we'll see how good my memory is.

    Also it wasn't a great practice for evaluating talent, today was all about the systems, positioning and trasition. They did a lot of work on neutral zone positioning and transitions. The goalies didn't get many shots but they were kept busy by the goalie consultant Ian Clark. He took them aside and was really working on their movement around the crease and down low coverage. He pretty much spent half of each practice with each goalie doing lateral movement drills and focusing on covering the bottom of the net.

    Notes:

    Crosby, Perry and Bergeron played together. They looked good but didn't get much of a chance to build chemistry due to the type of drils they were doing. Getzlaf and Carter played together but I couldn't tell for sure who they were with. I think it was Colliton or Stone. Stone and Fehr did not even play on the same team. Fehr skated with Dawes possibly Ladd. Couldn't tell who the third guy was. Fehr was really consistent when they were shooting on the goalies, he scored a ton. Excellent scoring hands, ridiculous shot.

    Overall I must say the speed and passing were very impressive, both sessions kept a very fast pace. It will be a highly skilled team.

    I was really concentrating on the goalies today since the skater drills weren't skill based. Beauchemin and Nastiuk looked a little stronger than Glass, and Dubnyk was fighting the puck a bit but was still okay, but seems to be a bit behind the other three right now.

    Hope this helps. If I can get a list of the players and their numbers I'll be able to fill in a lot of blanks regarding the lines but I can't find one.

    Those numbers aren't right. They have split the camp into Team Red and Team White and all the numbers are between 2-10 I think. So if you see a list like that, it's what I'm looking for.

    There is an intrasquad game tonight and I will most likely be going, I'm sure they will have a roster list available for that. Not sure if I can get to both games vs U of M but I should see the first one. Any time I go see them skate I'll report back here.

    Also, Crosby was delayed due to weather so he didn't make the Sunday night skate, I wasn't there but I heard it was just a light skate so he didn't miss much. Bergeron also missed yesterday. Everyone is in camp now.

    Also, I didn't see Stefan Meyer's name on that link...
    Is that to give him a subtle hint?

    Any more info on how the goalies are looking? I am most curious about that position. It seems to be the biggest toss- up :)

    Sorry folks, unfortunately I got tied up and couldn't get to the intrasquad game like I had hoped. Here's a link to the TSN article about it.

    Crosby and Carter both scored sweet goals. Colliton and Dixon scored the others in a 3-1 win for Team Red.

    On the Hockey Canada site now, the numbers are given and they are the same ones as on the IIHF site.

    Of note, Meyer is wearing #10 and Stone #23 (not given under the IIHF site).

    He was wearing #5 - that's all I'll say since I want this certain defenseman to make team Canada. :bonk:

    I still can't believe the arena is called the MTS Centre, in french that's the acronym for Sexually Transmitted Disease. They're basically playing at the STD Centre.
    I'm sure the francophone population of Winnipeg is pissing their pants.

    I saw them talking about Barker in the toronto star or sun i can't remember he had a big pic and said a few things he's in for sure

    Seabrook is a shoo in

    Carter should make it unless he has a bad second half which he wont

    Colin Fraser may make it cuz he is Brent's fav player on his WHL team
    He plays a Matt Barnaby type style as he leads his team in points and agitates

    Dave bolland looks like he'll make it as a 4th liner

    WHat are d lines?

    I know in the whl vs. Russia Seabrook and barker started and phaneuf was twoed

    There is noway Dixon is left off.....he apparently had a good game and a really nice goal. The guy is a perfect 4th line center.

    However, Crosby schooled Picard on his goal.

    Sutter broke up the combinations of Stone-Fehr, Getzlaf-Ladd and Meyer-MacArthur. I expect they will get a chance to play together during at least a couple intrasquad games. Although I heard that the line of Dixon-Stone-Colliton looked good in the first game and scored a goal caused by hard work (and a nice finish by Dixon). I think that would be an unbelievable checking line.
