Hey, guess where we are:
Nope, not quite:
The firs day of training camp at the Penguins' new arena:
-The first few players taking the ice:
Group A has taken the ice. This group consists of:
Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Eric Godard-Chris Conner-Joe Vitale
Nick Petersen-Casey Pierro-Zabotel-Joey Haddad
Brooks Orpik-Zbynek Michalek
Robert Boruzzo-Simon Despres
Brian Strait-Jason DeSantis
Group A's session ends after 45 minutes:
-As you can tell, there are no advertisements yet on the boards.
-Apologies if things are a bit slow. The wireless connection has been a little troublesome. THIS BUILDING IS FALLING APART ALREADY!!!!!
-Group B takes the ice. This group consists of:
Arron Asham-Craig Adams-Matt Cooke
Mike Rupp-Mark Letestu-Maxime Talbot
Zach Sill-Alex Smigelski-Jesse Boulerice
Chris Colins-Tyler Brown
Deryk Engelland-Derek Peltier
-A scrimmage between Group A and Group B begins:
-Brent Johnson is in net for Group A. Curry is in the pipes for Group B.
-As you can imagine, Crosby, Dupuis and Kunitz are on the top line for Group A.
-Cooke, Adasm and Letestu comprise Group B's top line.
-We wouldn't put much weight into any of these line combinations or defensive pairings, but Michalek is skating with Orpik.
-Letestu nets a nifty goal on Johnson. Assists go to Talbot and Asham. Group B 1-0.
-Should that be called the TAL line or the LAT line?
-The first period of the scrimmage ends with Group B up 1-0.
-There's apparently some media access down in the locker room at the moment so we're going to jump ship for a few minutes and head down there. If Zach Sill scores the greatest scrimmage goal in history and we miss it, we apologize.
-Back from media access in the locker room. Zbynek Michalek is a pretty good quote. Had a nice conversation with Mike Rupp as well. We'll transcribe that later.
-Apparently little of note happened during the rest of the scrimmage. Pascal Dupuis had a nice set up from Crosby and missed if you can imagine such a thing.
-Group C has started practicing.
The group consists of:
Mike Comrie - Evgeni Malkin - Tyler Kennedy
Eric Tangradi - Ryan Craig - Dustin Jeffrey
Nick Johnson - Kevin Veilleux - Brett Sterling
Tim Wallace -
Kris Letang - Paul Martin
Steve Wagner - Carl Sneep
Corey Potter - Ryan Schnell
