Rookie camp information, from the Canadiens:

    They actually are but must pay their own way. You will notice that Walsh and Stejskal from Dartmouth are present but only due to the fact they have not started classes yet. The other Collegiate prospects have.

  2. twocents says:

    I believe U.S. college rules don’t allow their players to attend these camps. This explains 3 of those picks. Trunev is still in Russia and I believe Missiaen has been deemed a non prospect, as his development hasn’t… developed.

  3. GrimJim says:

    If I remember right, NCAA rules prohibit college players from going to professional team camps unless the player pays for all expenses, etc. He might have decided to not go to rookie camp because he doesn’t want to pay, or because he is already in school or some other personal reason. No big deal.

    That’s like Montreal getting rid of Gorges cause Subban had incredible Bulldogs stats and has a great pedigree as a result.  Just cause some junior posted great junior records does not always translate into a good pro career.  Some young athletes just do not make the jump.  In my opinion Price is one of those players.  What GM worth their weight in salt would let go the losing goalie, although Price’s NHL win record outshines Halak’s it is knowing when to win is key.   Price exceled when he first got into the NHL he was very promising.  Unfortunately for Price he also had a bad tendency like he does today, to let in floater shots above his right shoulder, or under his glove hand.  There is a big difference in the amount of goals scored in a game say with the Bulldogs, than say with the Habs.  If the Bulldogs score alot then there is alot of padding to save a win.  Price’s loss record unfortunately for most of us fans and why we hate him so much, is he loses just by a little bit. He is good enough just enough that makes you think he’ll win, then at the last moment late in the 3rd period he’ll give away the lead and then let in floater after floater.  This is why we loved Halak.

    He’s still a college athlete and they are not eligible to attend rookie camps.

    Go Habs Go!

    Well some of us are real hockey fans, and as real hockey fans, we know a good goalie when we see one.  In fact the whole world is still wondering why Montreal traded Halak.  Cause as real hockey fans, we know Montreal lacks size, has a defensive glut, can’t win face offs and can’t repel an aggressive rush once Gomez coughs up the puck 100 times a game at least.

    Why isn’t Danny Kristo on that list? Why aren’t any of the 2008 draft picks on that list? Maybe I just can’t read sideways???

    I agree Steph.! I think I will wear my fake press pass this year!
