In Topic: Training Camp Thread

I just said the same thing on Mlive's comment section.  I really can't think of a single time in which this has been true. 


Isn't that what Babcock is saying though? Up until now he's given the jobs to the veterans, this training camp he's giving it to the best player. This being the first season with this philosophy, he's hardly had a chance to go back on it.

I think he is a bad example. Washington has been a terrible team for awhile with only a few good players. A couple players can't carry any team in te playoffs.


He's a bad example because we're talking about Ville Leino, but look what Steve Yzerman had to do to help the Wings become a contender. It is always more difficult to win with one dimensional players.

Yes lazy and selfish but he can score a craps ton of goals, so he is proof that it can work, as long as you have enough skill.


I think we're talking about two different things. I'm saying it doesn't work because hockey is a two way game. Obviously you can just score goals, hundreds of players have done that, that's clearly not the point. Players like Ovie can get away with doing it but if it worked the Caps would be a lot better.

Tell that to ovie


Someone should tell that to Ovie. He's proof it doesn't.

I've played around with different length sticks and different curves but have come to the conclusion I'm just not good enough for it to make a difference.

I went from playing 3-4 nights a week (2 ice, 2 roller) in the adult leagues in Columbus, OH to playing never (had a baby in January.) Im worried I'm going to be even worse when I resume. I'm 33 and past my prime! Though my knees are better than Cleary's it's all in my hands.
