Sorry I’ve been slow in posting the pictures I took at camp yesterday. I’m in the early stages of trying to buy a house (great timing, right?) and have been preoccupied with that.
I don’t have many really well thought-out opinions on what I saw in camp — between fooling with the camera, twittering line combinations, and socializing with friends, my usual razor-sharp powers of observation (you know, the ones that pegged Greg Mauldin as a surefire NHLer…) weren’t quite there. I will say that — assuming Brassard can handle the load playing against NHL defensemen night-in and night-out — I really liked the look of the Nash-Brassard-Huselius line. There’s some pretty good skill there, and it sets up Modin-Umberger-Voracek as potentially — again, assuming Voracek is ready for NHL duty — the best second line the Jackets have ever had.
I’m going to try to hit some sessions of camp this week, but as always, that’s pending my work schedule. The Jackets have posted a revised camp schedule and have also made the first cuts, sending 2008 draftees Steven Delisle, Brent Regner, and Matt Calvert back to juniors.
And now on to the pics:
