Training camp opens

52

… So I’m headed over to the practice rink this morning. Will have some stuff from there today and tomorrow, and hopefully during next week, too.

Just so youse know … since we have that Twitter widget over there ——> and every reporter standing by the glass is tweeting every thought that pops into his head, I’m not going to bother doing that unless I come up with something very original, or newsy. I’ll let those guys tell you who’s playing where and who scored what kind of scrimmage goal.

See youse later.

  1. Yay! Finally!
    Good to see Prusty is keeping the HBO guys on their toes! I get the feeling the tweets will be a lot less jovial after Torts starts his conditioning drills!!

    Any news on the 4 training camp teams yet?

  2. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Camp opens today!

    Nooooo!!!! My car got side swiped this morning by a line striping crew.

    Good morning, Sally!

    Real_ESPNLeBrun Small world: just ran into Wade Redden here at Pearson Airport. He’s in transit en route to Hartford. He’s in good spirits.

  6. That’s great. I wouldn’t want Wade Redden to be upset. That might bring the whole team down. Must be tough to keep your spirits up when you only have endless amounts of money.

  7. wades got it good doesnt he? he doesnt have to do torts crazy training camps and gets paid about as much as hank to play(help teach young d mn) in hartford. doesnt have to get yelled at and embarrased by torts

  8. gotta feel for any of the young guys like hagelin erixon miller and parlett. this is their first torts training camp right?

  9. Actually, Redden takes home more money than Hank does, Grabby. AHL players don’t pay escrow, which was as high as 17% at some point last year.

    Good morning, boneheads!

  10. And there’s also very little worth spending your money on in Hartford. Only so many times you can go to the Cheesecake Factory in West Hartford.

  11. CT

    well…you can always go to the Mark Twain house, or take a side trip up to Springfield Mass and see the Eastern States fair….better than sitting on the floor to let your feet hang.

    …sorry about this.

  12. Actually though, CT if Wade Redden likes hard drugs at all he could blow through that stash pretty quickly over in Frog Hollow!

  13. Now I didn’t say there was nothing you could spend your money on. And besides he was there last year so I’m sure he took care of the Twain house.

    As for the other stuff, if I had that kind of coin and that kind of habit, I’d think about setting up either my own coca or poppy plant field or hire the dude from Breaking Bad to set up a meth lab. Vertically integrate the supply chain.

  14. >>Can you smell it? Hockey is in the air.

    The temperatures in NYC this morning even feel like hockey weather. Drop the puck already!

  15. Great call. Meth is where the money’s at. You just have to hire a bunch of kids to go purchase as much Sudafed as possible. It’s also tough dealing with what cooking Meth does to your home but if you have that much Coin (and you are presumably growing that stash with your operation) you should be able to just demolish and rebuild.

  16. You just gotta get guys who know what they’re doing. Make it a professional operation, like the Starship Enterprise room from New Jack City.

  17. LMAO!! CT, i used to have similar zubaz! bought a set with matching pair of underwear! it was a patriotic set! on sale, too! ;)

  18. CTB, Manny- WTB?

    Try to keep it together, folks. I know you’re all excited about training camp and all, but we need everyone on the blog to be in top shape physically, and more important, mentally.

  19. “Look, Pedro, I don’t know how they do things down in Juarez, but here in Idaho we have a little something called pride. Understand? Smashing in the face of a pinata that resembles Summer Wheatley is a disgrace to you, me, and the entire Gem State.”

  20. RANGERS HOCKEY! A new brand of hockey!!! For the first time in a long time, management seems to be making all the right decisions. Next decision, Whale Avery!!!

  21. it is only fitting since there is a chill in the air outside today that training camp opens. the smell of hockey i love it. cant wait for wed night on msg first preseason game.

  22. That was one of the funnier parts of 24/7 last year where you saw the Pens equipment managers turn on a bunch of high powered fans after unloading the gear from a road trip. And the voiceover guy said something like “even profesisonal equipment managers still haven’t found a better way to reduce the stench of well worn equipment”.

  23. Haha. I didn’t see that part. They should get those things that go in your nose that coroners use. I think they are called cotton balls.

  24. That was a really good one LW. I think you just sit around waiting for your opportunity to make a funny first comment. Your first comments of each day are always great zingers.

    morning ILB and all!

    so I’ve missed some of the tweets on wasabi—>…who is doing well and who is winded during torts’ drills? I’m guessing bull dog’s boy did pretty well?
