Florida Panthers Training Camp Preview

Florida Panthers Training Camp Preview

For the first time in several years, the Florida Panthers are holding their training camp in their own home town. Looking to put last season’s miserable campaign behind them, a campaign that saw the departures of veterans Scott Mellanby, Ray Whitney, Todd Simpson, Rob Neidermayer, Mike Sillinger and Igor Larionov. With a turnover of nearly a quarter of their roster, the Panthers are giving new and hungry players a chance to turn the Panthers around. Coming to South Florida this year are Jason Weimer, Valeri Bure, Jeff Norton, Bernie Kosar, and the promise of several rookies who are anticipated to make the team. As Tool’s Maynard Keenan sings in the line “I know the pieces fit”, it will be up to the Panther coaching staff to make sure all the pieces fit.

Each position will be analyzed for the current mix of veterans and rookies that will be competing for the spots. Some positions will not have an opening available for some rookie to make the team and will rely on whatever veterans are available to fill in the roster. After each position is analyzed, I will make my “fearless prediction” on what rookies will make the team. My only disclaimer is that I reserve the right to be very wrong in these predictions and will ignore all mocking derisive comments that I probably will earn and deserve. So with that being said, onto the rosters!

Atlanta Thrashes the Wild

The Atlanta Thrashers soundly beat the Minnesota Wild six to three.

Minnesota’s Derek Boogaard went to the penalty box for roughing two
minutes and eighteen seconds into the game.
Forty-five seconds later Atlanta’s Carl Mallette took a slashing penalty
just as his teammate Chad Wolkowski put the puck in the net past Brady
Block. The goal and power play were nullified by Mallette’s penalty.

It only took Atlanta six more seconds to get on the board though after
Mallette went to the penalty box when Dany Heatly scored.
Back at even strength four and a half minutes into the game Atlanta
scored again from Karl Stewart, assisted by Heatly.

Stewart was then caught holding with Luke Sellars already in the penalty
box for slashing. Block went to the bench on the delayed penalty, giving
the Wild a six-on-four advantage. Stephan Veilleux scored at five
forty-nine with assists from Eric Johansson and Travis Roche.

Minnesota opened the second period with two goals in the first five
minutes of play. The first goal was scored a minute and sixteen seconds
into the period from Chris Heid with assists from Veilleux and Nick
Schultz. The second goal was put in the net five minutes into the
second from Matt Dzieduszycki with assists coming from Lyle Rolling and
Roche.

Atlanta scored three goals before the period ended taking away
Minnesota’s lead. Jeff Dessner scored the first of three with a helper
from Zdenek Blatny. Then Ilja Kolvachuck skated down to the Wild’s net
and just slipped the puck be Read more»

Montreal Canadiens win Hull Rookie Tourney

by Jake Dole
on
Vadim Tarasov and Ray Emery were the starting goalies for the Canadiens and Senators, respectively, as Montreal and Ottawa faced off for the honour as the top Hull tournament squad.
The game started off with plenty of physical action, as teams matched each other hit for hit. Jérôme Marois showed his awesome slap shot early as he unleashed one just high and wide of the net. Andrew Archer, the 6’4 defenseman for Montreal set the tone early with a bone-shattering open-ice hit. Till the very end, the game remained a tough, vigorous match.
Ron Hainsey, Montreal’s quarterback looked good early, delivering crisp, accurate passes. The Senators, on the other hand, had trouble staying consistent and made many mental mistakes.
The Canadiens struck first as the speedy Michael Ryder put Montreal up 1-0, with the assists from Hamelfarb and Thinel. Soon after, on the powerplay, the Canadiens equaled the previous accomplishment, as Ryder unloaded one by hapless Emery, to make it 2-0. Emery had allowed 2 goals on the first 4 shots of the game, but had deserved a better fate. To his credit, he settled down and played admirably.
Alexandre Tremblay, a 5’11 winger showed his speed early, with a partial breakaway, but was stopped in part to Emery’s quick reflexes. Marcel Hossa showed some great on-ice smarts with tape-to-tape passes, and good work along the boards.
Ottawa seemed to run out of steam late in the period, as the Canadiens managed to get the final 5 shots of the period. Ray Emery kept his team in it. All in all, Read more»
