I'm surprised to see that Demko hasn't been invited. Too many goalies with seniority? For that matter, is there a limit (maybe self imposed) on how many goalies you can take to training camp?

Youngstars get invites after the tournament. I'm sure he'll get the invite, though not everyone does.

I really hope Pedan kills it and forces himself into the line-up.  He's was a junior monster, and has done fairly well in Utica - and during his call ups.  He has a very hard shot from the point - and can score way out by the blue line - and clears the net like nobody's business. Also except for one fight with Bickell, he's laid out most guys (including some pretty good fighters) and never lost a bout decisively - something our team could use after two years of watching Dorsett lose.  He can play the game, hit. clear the crease and bring toughness back to the team....I say watch out Sbisa...your job is at risk.





Tryamkin may be two inches taller, but he's not the only big body in the system, and from what I can determine from his play in Russia he's not as much a bulldog as Pedan is....and I hope management see's this and gives the last spot to the most deserving big guy....and that playing both of them with Guddy would change the entire make-up of our team.
