I am swamped at work today which is unfortunate because there is so much going on in Caps Land.
Here is Tarik's take on whats going on at Development Camp today:
And here is the Cap's full roster for camp.
I'm out here at Kettler Capitals Iceplex taking in the opening morning of development camp. Not much to report yet. There are about a dozen fans in the stands and Hanlon and Boudreau are at the markerboard diagramming systems.
It's hard to tell which players look good because they're doing drills at the moment. I can, however, confirm this much: Varlamov is very quick. Unfortunately, I missed Backstrom's group because of a traffic backup.
This afternoon's scrimmage, from 4:30-6, should be pretty revealing in terms where individuals are in their development. So I'm looking forward to that. After the scrimmage is also the only time reporters can do interviews.
I'll do my best to update with news and interesting tidbits this week, but the boken-up schedule and limited access is going to make it difficult.
Don't forget all of the on-ice sessions are open and free to the public. So there's no excuse not to come out and get your July hockey fix.
