Just in Case

More news links which highlight training camp rosters in the East (or former East) division teams:

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles:
Culligan's Island
Short and Sweet

According to the 'Short and Sweet' article:
"Five over-age players will be at camp and with Chris Culligan given one of the three spots after being anointed captain in June, four players will be vying for the remaining two roster spots for 20-year-olds. They include forwards Joey Haddad, Robert Slaney and Murdock MacLellan and defenceman Alex Lamontagne.
Defenceman Spencer Corcoran was not invited back to contest for one of those spots. Durocher said he’s tried to find a spot for him within the league, but it hasn’t been easy so far because a number of 20-year-old players across the league will head to pro camps, putting their status up in the air."

How on Earth did I forget about Murd? I forgot about Murd!!! I should be shot. Also, Spencer is the cutest one of them all. Who said hockey was about skills? Damn you Eagles. This is not how I would run a team, but then again my team would only have one forward, so what do I know.

PEI Rocket:
Countdown Begins
Rocket gets ready for launch
Gellidonuts is at camp - weird.

According to the article 'Countdown Begins':
The Rocket traded with Chicoutimi for goalie Bobby Nadeau and defenceman Maxime Provencher at the QMJHL draft in June. Nadeau, the league’s top goalie last season with a 2.63 goals-against-average, replaces 20-year-old netminder Antoine Lafleur, who won’t report to camp and is finished with the Rocket. Nadeau is likely the number one goalie, but will last season's off-and-on starter Marc-Antoine GĂ©linas be happy with a backup role? If not, will he be moved? And if he goes, does Evan Mosher or Jon Waye become the backup?

Yes, good question - goalie lovers need to know!
