Awesome stories and pics- thanks to everyone for sharing. Can anyone from camp comment on Downey's skating?


He's doing well! He's on Pasha's team.

New pics added on Photobucket.

Sebastien Piche and Valtteri Filppula also scored for Team Lindsay. Jordan Owens scored Team Howe's lone goal.


YEAH FILPPULA.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Here's my pictures from Day 2. Lots more of the players came out to sign. I got to watch some of the scrimmage and practices too. Downey was looking faster than he has before and much sharper on the puck. Out of the prospects/younger guys, Owens is definitely one to watch. When he signed for me, I said that I liked his goal from yesterday, and he replied, "I had one today too. Did you see that one?" Tatar is also doing really well. Franzen went skates first into the boards during the scrimmage, and I had bad flashbacks from early last season, but he slowed down before he hit the boards. The Z-D-H line is looking really good--can't wait to see them in action. More to come tomorrow. I'll add video tonight too from the scrimmage.

I also like Jordan Owens. I ran into him at the grocery store last night, and he was so nice. He and I share the same birthday. He's got lots of potential. Also showing well is the young goalie, Petr Mrazek. He's got potential.

Okay, everyone:

Had to quickly learn how to use PhotoBucket, but I've got my pictures and one video up from today. I'll try to get more video from practice and scrimmage tomorrow. Some pictures came out great and others a little blurry. Hopefully next year, I can get a more professional camera. :D Also went to the dinner last night and was at the table with Joey MacDonald. Great guy and nice to talk to. Here's the link: DRW Training Camp 9/18/10

Enjoy! I'll keep 'em coming, now that I have WiFi.


These are GREAT, Wing Queen. Thanks for taking the time to put them on here!

Great weekend-
Just a few thoughts: Kindl, Modano, Thomas Mc Collum stood out to me as guys that "gelled"
I am so stoked for the season to begin. I honestly think we are the team to beat this year. Everyone looked solid with lots of chemistry!

Drop the puck already! :)

Archibald too...I thought he was very solid with lots of vision...anyone else impressed with his play?

The future looks bright in Hockeytown!

He's not too bad. Don't know much about him.

One funny thing happened today. We had Loki with us again and Ken Kal walked by. He stopped to pet Loki and talked to us for a minute, then left. He came back a few minutes later with a camera guy, and asked if he could sit down beside Loki. Of course we said sure, and now our pooch is gonna be on Red Wings TV!!! Ken made some promos with Loki, and I can't wait to see them online. It was crazy.

If you go to www.detroitredwings.com...hit multimedia and go to Red Wings TV. Under 2010 Training Camp Day #2 - Sights and Sounds, you will see my Loki about 45 seconds in.

I just posted more videos to my photobucket album for Day 2. Sorry, they take so long to download.

On an interesting side note, I went to a dinner tonight for Season Ticket holders with a friend who is one, and got to talk one-on-one with Howard and Ericsson. I asked Jimmy what he did with his old mask, and he said it was officially retired. But then he said that the Doc Oct one is a back-up and that his real new one hasn't arrived yet. I then said, "You're probably not going to give me any hints as to what's on it, are you?" and he replied with a smirk, "No, sorry, you'll just have to wait until next week to see that one." :P

Ken Kal and John Keating MCed the event and kept us laughing while we ate until Ken Holland showed up for a question and answer session. As he was talking, he discussed the future of goaltending in Detroit and felt Howie was the long term answer, and also mentioned he was a big fan of veteran players, indicating that Osgood (and players like Draper too) complimented the new guys on the team because they were "company" men who would do anything (take less pay and less of a role) for the team's sake. He mentioned he had read on the internet how "people are saying 'well so and so is too old' and such," so for those who wonder if they read and visit LGW, maybe. ;) I wished I had a tape recorder because he discussed a lot of interesting points that many on here would love to listen too (shoot outs, new prospects who've impressed him, the team this season), but sadly, I didn't have one handy.

Glad you all are enjoying the "Live" coverage here in Traverse City. Just wish I could have a media pass to get better pictures. ;)

Here's my pictures from Day 2.

Thank you so much for doing this! One question, though- is the guy in #74 Valtteri or Ilari? They look so much alike that I need to ask to be sure.

Pat- Congrats on Loki's fan club. Needing a service animal is not what one wants in life, but you sure got a nice silver lining here!

Glad all you ladies are having fun. Thanks again for posting!

Ilari. I don't know why but to me they look very different. Then again, I always think I can choose the correct Sedin twin and I'm not as good as that as I think.

Thanks. I kind of thought so, but wanted to be sure before I filed it.

2 goals for Sebastien Piche lately, he seems to be good on offense and if he fix his defensive errors he could end up in detroit in a few years.

I like his name too :thumbup:

I don't think anyone can tell the Sedin twins apart.

That^.

Thanks for clarifying. Yes, I was looking at an off-ice pic.
They do look very similar.

So do the Sedins.

Hudler hasn't been doing much this camp. 0 points and -4 in two games while playing with Cleary and Modano.

Archibald seems to be doing well at camp. If he continues, I wouldn't mind seeing Holland throwing a contact at him.

WOW! This team is absolutely amazing this year - depth and speed! The youngsters that are waiting for injuries are looking very sharp. Sat in the front row for all 3 days and saw more laughter than we have in previous years. Was able to meet Kira, Loki (Loki loves to have his belly rubbed!) and Terry - THE NICEST PEOPLE YOU WILL EVER MEET! The Traverse City Record Eagle did a very nice write up on our 3 friends yesterday. Got to watch Kira from across the ice today - she was snapping photos like crazy and rubbing shoulders w/ "her boys!" Lucky lady!!! Got the scoop from Kira every morning, so we were prepared.

Watched Pav and Z play keep away - entertained the crowd and then Pav gave us wave and acknowledged the cheers - awesome guys.

Downie is looking faster - he did a great job. The boys all look rested - very sharp and ready. Modono is taller and thinner than we expected. He is looking very good on face offs. Hudler had an ear to ear grin and was really skating well.

Both Mr. & Mrs. Illitch came to watch practice on Sunday...we got some photos of them. This was the first time in 10 years that we have seen them at Training Camp...

Can't wait to see what happens...
