Jesse Marshall from Faceoff Factor here again, reporting for Adam and Derek. Day two of camp is in the books. Let's get down to business.
Rob Scuderi was M.I.A. today. And I don't mean Paper Planes. He didn't participate in either drill session or the scrimmage. No word on what the deal is.
Lines were as follows:
Miroslav Satan – Sidney Crosby – Pascal Dupuis
Matt Cooke – Max Talbot – Ruslan Fedotenko
Luca Caputi – Kris Beech – Eric Godard
Tim Wallace – Chris Minard – Mark Letestu
Sergei Gonchar – Brooks Orpik
Darryl Sydor – Alex Goligoski
Danny Richmond – Ben Lovejoy
Jordan Staal – Evgeni Malkin – Petr Sykora
Janne Pesonen – Jeff Taffe – Tyler Kennedy
Adam Henrich – Bill Thomas – Connor James
Paul Bissionette – Dave Gove – Derek Boogaard
Kristopher Letang – Mark Eaton
Joey Mormina – Derek Engellend
TJ Kemp – Hal Gill
People like to dump on Dany Sabourin, but he's yet to allow a goal in scrimmaging, and he actually looked uber-sharp in the drills today. Same can be said for Fleury, he exhibited a lot of big time saves today.
Jordan Staal = Reinvigorated.
Legame = $$$.
Luca Caputi looked decent today despite an injured hip, and I think Tyler Kennedy may have gained a step in the offseason, his skating today was unreal.
Janne Pesonen. He's good, but who do you put him in the lineup with? More importantly, who do you sit in leiu of him? Can you? I'll leave that up to C-blog, but my .2 is that, at this point, it's an uphill battle for Goldmember.
Stop by the Factor to check out the rest of the thoughts. Including a rundown of an absolutely stellar performance by WB/S head coach Dan Bylsma in goal against Staal. You know that moment in wrestling where some dude runs down the ramp out of nowhere and dominates the show? That happened today, and Staal was on the receiving end of some surprise defense.
On a lighter note, the lady that sat behind me tricked her kids into thinking they were going to see actual Penguins. The kids were stunned when dudes came walking out of the runway. It was unreal.
See you guys tomorrow - 2 down - 1 to go.
