Chief, Kjell, Mullen and Little Ran the session on the Flyers side.
Potulny was a man possesed during the puck drills.
Klotz was clearly the biggest guy out there.
Houle and Munroe were not sharp at all. Burned almost the whole time.
Cabana, Zigoni, Potluny were the standouts in the session.
Everyone else seemed even with one another.
A few were worse.
Moved to Phantoms side, Mystery coach (who even Coatsey didn't know) and Mullen run skating Drills.
The goalies stayed on the Flyers side and worked with the goaltending coaches.
Neil was showing Dupont to not go down as a players comes from behind the net to stay up and fill as much of the net as you can. (vs as one person commented Nitty who goes down to cover low)
The video coach is taping all the drills.
Parent vs Potulny was even
Downie lost both his races
Klotz raced against no one.
It seemed like they went by height then weight. As they did 2 rounds of races.
Only channel 6 was here for the morning session.
Kempe got hurt and went off with the trainer.
Lehtivuori was last in both his races and just looked horrible during all the skating drills.
The b group peeks out to see what is going on.
The last skting drill had some stellar complete wipeouts.
It was forward against D with a turn and the D going backwards. Zigoni got taken out by the other guy puttting a stick between his legs.
I stayed did public session and then on to the B group. Several people also did the same thing I did.
49= Rejean Beauchemin, 63= Rob Bellamy, 56=Claude Giroux, 52=Tristan Grant, 29=Nate Guenin, 34=Lars Jonsson, 60=Jon Kalinski, 62=Patrick Maroon, 39=Kevin Marshall, 68=Jon Matsumoto, 50=Gino Pisellini, 19=Darroll Powe, 38= Dylan Ruaile, 5=Michael Ratchuk, 64=Jon Rheault, 27=Jared Ross, 14=Stephan Ruzicka, 10=James vanRiemsdyk
Sames coaches on the Flyers side the main difference was Little replaced by Lemelin.
This group looks significantly quicker in speed.
The group looks very even as well. The standouts are Ratchuk, Patrick Maroon, Rob Bellamy, Kevin Marshall
JVR had the prettiest goal of the puck session.
Switch to the Phantoms side, Mystery coach and Kjell
All the races were very even.
In the drill with the cones in a triangle Ruzicka had the biggest spray when stopping.
JVR seemed very unsure of himself in that same drill.
Lars got worked on a couple of times by the trainer.
Bellamy looked like he got a cramp or something when he went to the trainer.
There was a huge crowd for both sessions. Some people left and came back some stayed. The biggest sections of the crowd were different in each session.
You rock! Thanks for this
no problem my pleasure.
Thanks Lady. I might head out to Voorhees at some point. Not sure about my sked.
There was alot of people there so if you go go early or be prepared to stand.
Hmm, interesting. I am going tomorrow for the morning session, possibly the afternoon session as well.
Thanks for the photos! And the commentary. Great stuff!How do Klotz's skills look?How about JVR? I'd hope he would hang out with Grioux and Downie, since they are first round picks with high upside. Looks like Downie and Grioux stick by one another; be nice to see JVR more involved with our other top prospects.
Thanks for the info, Lady! I'd love to get down there to check it out...stupid work...always getting in the way!
It seemed like the broke the group up so everyone could be paired off by size. I think that might be why one wasn't with the others.
