More floaty play from Team

More floaty play from Team White...you'd think Lecavalier would want to come to camp and play hard, but he's been floating around, not playing D and was responsible for a goal for not being back in the right defensive position for a center today. Delmore and Richardson...I really just hope they dont play together...ever...if they both stay. I wont get into it, but they were made to look silly more than once by Karlsson and Alexeev.

It doesn't seem to be in

It doesn't seem to be in their plans, but if it were me I would split up Ranger and Boyle and spread their speed more evenly throughout the pairings specifically so we wouldn't have to have a pairing like Richardson/Delmore.

that's typical Vinny

I've been to training camp for a few years now, and have yet to see Lecavalier do anything astounding there during scrimmages. That's just how he is in the preseason.

Yeah unfortunately since

Yeah unfortunately since his days of wearing the good ol #8 he's played that way in camp. I dont know, I'd thought being publicly challenged thsi offseason by his coach and GM might fire him up a bit...but this camp the only thing that got him was a smack to the nose today from Healey :(
