We'll see a scrimmage, Dylan McIlrath, the goalies under fire, etc. Stay tuned here and at twitter.com/stevezipay for live reports from camp.

            One point that seems to be misunderstood on message boards. No smokescreen on McIlrath.

             Gordie Clark said at the draft that he was asked specifically about Tarasenko and other forwards on the conference call and he responded. It's true. No one asked him about D-Mac.  We didn't go down the line asking about 15-20 players. And anyway, he wasn't going to tip his hand. I wouldn't either if I had the No. 10 pick.

             If Atlanta re-signs Johan Hedberg, Rangers might target Biron or Niittymaki....Given the fact that they are looking for help at center, Matt Lombardi and maybe Saku Koivu (if he doesn't want to stay out West) might be in the mix.  Also, keep your eye on the RFAs who weren't qualified; that mid-range mass of forwards turning UFA will be scrutinized.
