NOTES: The first scrimmage is today at 11:15 a.m., Team Delvecchio vs. Team Sawchuk.
It's interesting that the strategy for forwards is to keep potential regular-season lines together. Hudler Zetterberg and Franzen will be a unit in camp and coach Babcock said they will likely start the season that way. But on the blue line, the attitude is more of learning, pairing veterans with up-and-comers. Lidstrom is with Pyett. Stuart is with Ericsson, Rafalski is with Kindl and Chelios with Quincey.

Why isn't Johan Ryno in camp? Has he gone the way of Grigorenko? Or is part of 'letting him develop in Europe' including keeping him out of camp?

How about Joakim Andersson?

Or what about a couple of the recent draft picks (Max Nicastro and Gustav Nyquist) who weren't included in the prospects camp either?

Thanks.

Hey Bruce, how did you Larsson and Howard look today?

And I like the pairing of Ozzie and T-Mac.

You think the pairing of Lilja/Lebda is a way to get 1 last look before they decide to trade one of them?

obviously Lilja would have to outplay lebda massively to make it so they didn't also have to trade/waive a forward.

I think there are alot of interested Defensive Pairings..
