Should have taken my binocs- no numbers at practice, only nameplates on colored sweaters so I had trouble knowing who was who unless I recognized them by skating style- guys like Ovie and Kuz are easy to spot. I'll know better next time.

red- 1st and 2nd lines Connolly was in red this morning, I presume in Wilson's spot

white- 3rd and 4th of the "new" maybes- Vrana, Graovac, Peluso, and Boyd wore white

blue- D the usual big 4, then Bowey and Ness

Not much attitude with the guys still fighting to make it, they were all business... couple of cheers and stick taps for getting wicked shots past Mr. Holtby.

First was goalie drills- 2 goalies at same net, shoot pucks along boards to behind net where they get it out and then return to net. 5 shots pretty much rapid fire, then the goalies switch sides for 5 more. Next drill was 3 guys, top of the circles and in slot, 6 shots to goalie moving left to right, next series right to left.

Then just some 3Fs on 2D drills with goalie in, some 5 on 5 stuff, some 5 on 4 stuff. Nothing unusual.

Couple of speed laps for the whole team, couple minutes of stretching at center ice, led by the captain (who was late arriving to the circle), and at that point I'd seen enough. Left after the stretches.

So it looked to me like they are going to give guys one last look with this game- I honestly don't see Ness or Peluso staying here much longer, but what do I know? I also guess next game (Friday at Carolina) we see the other guys like Djoos and Siegenthaler get their last look and then the hammer comes down Saturday before Sunday's game at St Louis (2:00P my time).

Won't be around for this game tonight- guitar gets in the way. What they've shown so far, I won't be surprised win or lose. :D

End 1st. NJD with 3 PPGs already... their new kid Hischier is 1-2-3 +1, MoJo 0-1-1, Hayes, Butcher, and Stafford the other 3 goals. Someone named Severson with the other 2 assists.

This team as constituted will be hard pressed to get to 90 points / playoffs.
