It may not of had all the glam, glitz, and raunchiness of a Lightning shoot out, but after a grueling 60 minute workout, C.U.'s version brought to close another year's training camp. Picking up where he left off, veteran puck stopper Mike "Smitty" Smith kept all shooters at bay. "There would have been one hell of a pile of equipment in the corner, and an awful lot of skin coming down the ice had we done the lighting shoot out " .
Numbers were down at this years camp, an indication that many veterans have been following a very strict off ice training and nutrition program, and felt no need to attend. However, a strong showing by a group of eager rookies, may have left some very tough decisions for management to make. This Sunday night's home opener against The Swan River Raiders should be a good one.
