I was thinking about going to the blue n gold scrimmage as I did last year
Does anyone know the full schedule? I think there is something going on today.

the schedule I think was posted on the Sabres main web-site but I can't find it anywhere

If anyone can provide me with a schedule that would help me out and I'd appreciate it..

Thanks

So I was looking at the camp invitees and we only have 1 invite on defense who is under 6'1" and none under 192lbs.  We are big on the back end.  Also of note, JT Compher is listed as 5'10" and I am wondering if they update this with players height and weight.

Also the only player even in the ballpark with points last season compared to Reinhart, Nick Baptiste.

There's no restriction other than the player having to pay his own way to get here. I'm not sure if the sabres can pick up the bill for the junior players or not.

This is it ladies and gentlemen. This camp a big deal. This is the crucible where it starts.

There will be so many good prospects in camp Monday that the critical mass is there to create an environment where talented prospects will be forced to compete and compete hard to earn their place in the pecking order.

Zemgus will be setting the standard for talented grit guys like Compher and Baptiste to match.
If Brendan Lemieux wants to be an NHL power forward any time soon he is going to have to be better than Carrier or Fasching.
Who is the guy who will be in the wheelhouse on offence: Samson or Mikhail? Joel Armia, you are being chased by Justin Bailey.
Nikita, Jake, Mark and Rasmus? There's only room for two of you right now.
Nobody has earned the label goalie of the future yet. Which one of you is it going to be?
Cornel, Schaller, Kea, Catenacci, Samuels-Thomas, Gauthier, Florentino, etc., look at guys in front of you.
You want it, you better bring your lunch bucket.

This is one of the key components of the plan: bringing a bunch of young talent together at the same time, let them fight it out. Let them bond. Let the strong survive. I can't wait.

Anyone going to watch and post some reports?

This is a good write-up. Appreciate it. Makes me feel better about our future then just seeing a list of the invitees (which isn't that impressive in itself). I just wish we had a better hit percentage for our 1st rounders over the last few years.

The drive out of Toronto during rush hour is so brutal. That would be some serious dedication.

I'm going to the scrimmage Tuesday night with my brother and cousin. I don't post much here, I've been a lurker for many years. I'll share my thoughts after the scrimmage.

Ya the drive during rush hour is brutal but considering some talent that will be there and the tickets are free I still may go for it. Will probably take a half day vacation from work so as to miss the traffic and grab a bite downtown before it starts.

Maybe I'll see ya there.  I, like probably hundreds of others, will be rocking my Myers jersey.

Reinhart looked smooth in what he does, not a lot of wasted motion. He sent a no look pass out front finding a wide open Justin Bailey. The Sabres first round pick less than a month ago was glad to finally get on the ice, “It was great, it was a thrill to have that all over with and finally come here. It’s a lot more comforting to know that all of that’s over and you can really get down to business and enjoy the week. It’s my first experience at a NHL level, so I’m just taking it in stride and enjoying the process.”


From a skill standpoint I felt I should get here and see Mikhail Grigorenko dominate and he didn’t disappoint. He made a few slick moves especially a one on one move to turn Brycen Martin inside out. He finished by scoring high on Cal Peterson. It’ll be interesting to see if he moves his good play forward into the scrimmage.

The list is actually pretty impressive given they have something like 7-8 first round picks in camp.

Other names like Fasching, Bailey, Baptiste, McCabe, Compher, etc, are very intriguing and impressive.

How can we have a "better hit percentage on our 1st rounders over the last few years," if we don't even know the hit percentage of them yet, so far? There is PLENTY of time for Grigorenko and Armia to develop into top-line studs. Girgensons, Pysyk, Ristolainen and Zadorov have already showed they have enough promise to hold out hope...and Reinhart is Reinhart. (Don't forget these are growing/developing KIDS!)

I don't understand how you could think like that or make that comment...it is super-duper far too early for that, in my opinion.

EDIT: Honestly, from 2008-2015...I think our "hit percentage on 1st rounders" will be damn impressive within time.

I heard a news report from somewhere that said he looked really slick and strong out there. His skill was definitely on display and he had some amazing moves.  I just hope that rough report is more or less correct. Grigs must take a leap forward this year whether it be the AHL or the NHL.  This is a guy who needs to start showing us a little bit.

I'm sure that report is accurate.  In practice his skills can be on full display.  It's when game time comes that I want to see some of that magic.  I haven't given up on him yet either but this is the year I hope he shows something, even if it's in the AHL.

Realistically I think he should be in the AHL the entire season. Let him have a stable year with 1 solid level of expectations.

So 12 first/second round picks at Development Camp... plus we currently have 3 first and 3 second round picks in the coming draft.  Ridiculous.

One thing I like that Murray did (which was so very anti-Darcy) was he cleared out most of the marginal players this off-season (e.g., McBain, D'Agostini, Leino, Hank, Conacher, Konopka, Scott).  Whether intended or not, I think doing so tells these young guys that if they step up, there is a spot for them on the big club.
