I expect the Ducks staff will be using bold and highlighters on the phrase "acquired as compensation for D. Penner" on all rosters distributed at the event.

HA! I love it. I think the Oilers fans are savvy, and bitter, enough to know which players those are all on their own.

2008 Entry Draft:
17 - Jake Gardiner (defenseman)
35 - Nicholas Deschamps (center)
39 - Eric O'Dell (center)
43 - Justin Schultz (defenseman)
O'Dell is already gone thanks to the horrific trade that brought

A few things I noticed:
- Ducks are taking a lot fewer players than some teams. Ducks roster has 25 players, while I think I saw one team with a roster of 34!
- Deschamps is listed as a LW instead of Center. (At least I think that's a change).
- Brittain is listed as a RW instead of LW. (Again, based on my past notes).
- No Bobkov on the roster!! (Could be that his transfer from KHL isn't final yet?)
I think, in general, the Ducks took the "Rookie" thing seriously, and left off guys like DeGray, Hillier, Sharp, Bickel, Regan, Levasseur.

Hmmmm.....How wide is an NHL rink? 3 X 6'4" = 19 feet. Should cover MOST of the blue line, and make for a much more difficult zone entry.
Ok....NHL rink is 85 feet across, and my idea sucks. Way too much room to get around the pylons.

Not a lot of room to sign a prospect D-man, however. Currently we have 48 contracts, and at least 7 D already in the minors:
- And one of Syvret/Mikkelson/Festerling.
(Assuming the 7 in Anaheim are Vis/Sutton/Lydman/Sbisa/Brookbank/and two of Mik/Fes/Syv. Gets even more crowded if Fowler makes the big team.)
We are prospect heavy on D.....But NHL-ready poor.

And for those interested in watching, there's this:
Don't know how easy it will be to access from the States...But worth a shot, I guess!

I don't think the NCAA allows players to attend professional team training camps.
The development/conditioning camps in the summer are different, however. Why? Don't know....
Here's the only reference I have:
Any drafted player should have the right to participate in NHL training camp -- at least on weekends, when they don't have to worry about attending classes. Giving NHL teams the ability to invite college players to camp would at least give them another vehicle to evaluate these players, even if they aren't going to be allowed to sign them.
Apparently it's an academic issue as much as anything else. The Colleges are, or will be, in session during NHL training camps.
Actually a pretty good article on the strained relationship between the NCAA and NHL, and how the writer thinks it could be fixed. Some talk about Palmieri, and his late signing this year.

K, thanks. That was an interesting article. I wonder why the NHL and NCAA haven't worked some of these issues out yet.
