 2003-04 New York Rangers Training Camp Coverage << Hockey Alliance  
  Session 4 Saturday
  I missed the third session of the day when the second group came out for their drills, but I made it back in time to catch the scrimmage and the remainder of the drills in the final session of the day.  Just like the morning sessions, the second group featured two NHL ready lines of Simon, Holik and Lundmark and Rucinsky, Lindros and Carter.  As to the other lines, Larose was centering Petrovicky and I believe Healey, Dusablon had Wiseman and MacDonald on his wings and the remainder of the forwards appeared to rotate through (including Scott, Guite, Ulmer and a couple I can only assume to be Jamieson and Cuthbert).

The defense was as listed on the Rangers website with de Vries and Poti working together, Kasparaitis with Lampman, Kinch and Jakopin and Sloboda with Weller.  Goalies were Dunham, Meyer and Osaer.

The first thing I noticed was how slim both Simon and Lindros looked compared to previous years.  Lindros was flying around the ice and set up several passes in the offensive zone during his stints in the scrimmage, Simon by contrast appeared slow to me although at least one other observer was more impressed than I was.  In particular, Lindros and Rucinsky appeared to be picking up from where they left off making a handful of good connections and anticipating where the other was.  Carter has yet to pick up the mechanics of the line however and may not be the final option yet.

Holik has a few good shifts on the defensive side of the puck and Lundmark looks as if he might be a little stronger, but hasn't apparently lost much in the way of speed.  It'll be interesting to see him skate again tomorrow, and the same could be said for Cory Larose who was one of the best looking forwards in the scrimmage.  Larose had one of the three goals and battled both on offense and defense against bigger opponents.

Petrovicky was his usual agitating self and managed to upset Kevin MacDonald at one point, but it appears that the coaching staff is not interested in allowing much in the way of fighting this camp, with both players going their separate ways after a brief suggestion of more activity.  Of the remaining forwards, none particularly made an impression, although Dusablon and Wiseman had a couple of positive shifts and Guite was certainly skating hard.

The session marked the first time I'd seen de Vries in a Rangers sweater and he kind of reminded me of Brian Skrudland of all people (more in appearance than play).  He was energetic and seemed more into the practice than his partner Poti who looked listless in this early part of the season.  Kasparaitis too looked like he was enjoying things and put a hit on Richard Scott late in the session that toppled the rugged winger.  Of the young guys Lampman and Sloboda had good games, with both playing effectively in breaking up plays and getting the puck out of the zone.  Jakopin looks to be a steady, though non-spectacular depth player and Weller appears to have improved over last season.

In goal Dunham was the steadiest of all the goaltenders today, while Meyer continued to look nervous with lots of little movements that detracted from his game.  Osaer is another smallish goalie, but he was somewhat steadier than is AHL compatriot St Germaine from the earlier session.

Overall I was impressed by Nedved, Hlavac and Lindros from the opening day with the young line of Ortmeyer, Moore and Murray a highlight from the early session.  The play of Lampman and Sloboda as young defensemen was encouraging, while that of Tjutin in particular was disappointing.  Poti, Kovalev and Simon appear to have some work yet to do to get back in to the swing of things, but it's still early days yet.
