Lots of Buzz today around Justin Schultz but people still paying close attention to every move that Nail Yakupov makes. Players like Oscar Klefbom very noticeable today as well as the 'Twin Towers of Slovakia' , Martin Marincin and Martin Gernat. Marincin looked very good out there today in scrimmage in last 30 minutes of practice today.
Curtis Hamilton showed like he had more drive out there today stepping up his intensity more then previous days. Samu 'the Goalie' showed some nice displays while flashing the leather in the scrimmage time.
Got some inside information today that I am tracking down but not certain on in regards to some trade talks. All I can really say, is where there is smoke their is usually fire. Highly likely if Oilers can trade for a player they are looking at, it will cost prospects in the system but not sure who that would be with any certainty. Not to mention, to say a specific name could just lead to rumours galore. In the end, should Oilers get trade they want, 1 or 2 decent prospects will be going the other way. Should a trade happen let's hope only prospects that are not of the high end calibre.
Here are some of the tweets I sent out during todays camp on the ice...
