Rookie Camp Notes: Very VERY Short

Loktionov: Looks bigger. Wouldn’t be surprised if he makes it this year. Moller/Loktionov/Purcell? Probably too much to hope for. Dwight King: still big. Brandon Kozun: speed and scoring touch. Mikus: doesn’t look like a kid, but I didn’t see him do anything exciting. Hickey: looks bigger and stronger. Wouldn’t be surprised if he made it…

From Five Hole Fanatics: Who’s getting deep sixed in Detroit? [From Me: and can we have him?]

HEY WHY CAN’T WE SEE THE GOALIE’S HEAD IN ANY OF THESE PICTURES? Mouth-watering… It’s been a rough off-season for the NHL’s model franchise. Hossa bolts to rival Blackhawks. Samuelsson gets signed by the Canucks. Cap restrictions cause them to sign stop-gaps like Williams (okay) and Bertuzzi (yuck). Dead weight like Matlby and Draper are…

Via Matthew Barry: Lombardi tells Purcell to get to the blue paint, talks Calder and Army, and gives Boyle the Teeniest Wisp of a Last Chance Not to Suck

There are still many questions to be answered up front. Is Purcell ready to take it to the next level? “We’ve driven into him “you’ve got to get to the blue and you’ve got to pay the price””. Will Moulson be back? Will there be several surprises this season as we had with Wayne Simmonds…
