Oilers June Camp Invite List Released

The Edmonton Oilers released their list of invitees to Prospect Development camp. It’s on the Oilers site and there’s a nice post on Coming Down the Pipe (prompt to the right).

I guess it’s interesting that Taylor Chorney isn’t on the list but that should be much ado about nothing. If the Oilers can’t sign him because of money with the new world order and the new ownership about to come on board then there’s really no hope and we might as well buy Kansas City Royals attire.

This camp is the “summer” camp which is not to be confused with the “rookie” camp in Yellowknife just before main camp last fall. An excellent set of posts on that camp can be found
here. Quoting Guy Flaming in regard to last year’s summer camp “Last year’s prospect camp was lame. There were, if I recall correctly, about 15 players two of which (Wild and O’Marra) were limited to rising the bike due to injuries.This is basically an orientation camp to make sure the guys have the training regiment down pat before they start their off season workouts on their own. The on ice stuff if largely power skating drills (sprints with parachutes and stuff like that).”

    You’re confusing the June prospect camp and the September rookie camp LT.

    IE: Plante and Karamnov were NOT at the prospect camp lat summer but both were at rookie camp in September.

    None of the players taken in the 2007 draft were at last year’s prospect camp because it was held before the draft.

    I see they’ve listed a scrimmage and nightly 3-on-3 portions this year… which would be a nice change.

    Rookie camp is the lead-in to main camp. Last year that was in Yellowknife. Have not heard if they are going on the road for it this year.

    Ah, good stuff Guy. I’ll fix the post.

    And by “lame” I mean in terms of the thrill fans will get by watching it. I’m sure it’s very beneficial for the players… just not all that great to watch if you’re in the stands.
