A short blog on today on the first day
Had a great day, his play has really improved. Kevin's lateral movement from side to side was very good. Still needs to work on his angles giving to much room for the shooter. But he is quicker than last year he looks like he has had a good summer working out.
Looks like the old Matt as usual; I truly believe that he is the best prospect in net. His glove hand is very good, plays his angles very well. The only thing he needs to work on is controlling his rebounds.
Covers his net very well he does not give much for the shooter. But he is very quick and controls his rebounds very well. I love his attitude always looking for improvement. I suspect he will be battling it out for one of the two positions in Quad Cities.
He still has some work to do James not quite there yet. In all fairness has not had the background as the other three. He is still a good looking prospect needs some help in covering his angles well. His glove has is pretty good and is a great stick handler.
But again this is only the first day; there is plenty of time to make up.
The Shooters that were there were
The guy is a good as advertised. I love his skating has quick hands will make a great playmaker. Backlund has all the tools to be the right for the NHL. It will be in the line up or back to Sweden, he will not to back to Quad City.
Dan did not look rusty today made some solid shots I like his skating ability. I think he will be fine, glad to see him there.
