  1. Its going to be an interesting camp and start of the year to see what rookies make the team, what 20 year olds stay and if there are any deals to be done....should be fun! Scott

  2. Overage Predictions.....Ty Rimmer, Graham Hood, and Daniel Johnston stick. Kiziuk moves on to University or College hockey, Oslanski traded along with Nick Bounasissi. But trading overages could be a problem if.....there is an NHL lockout.


  3. I agree with Johnston and Rimmer but I don't see how the team can afford to give up Buonasissi's 50 to 60 pts a year....the scoring depth is weak...tough call.


  4. The only way you keep Hood is if he decides he is the biggest guy on the team. We have alot of small forwards that are going to need someone to stand up for them. If Hood is not willing to do that then get rid of him. AJ
