Alain Vigneault met with the media earlier today following the Rangers training camp practices (NYR):

  • On the lineups, "I have six guys who will be in both games, penciled in right now and both goalies will play both games. In our evaluation of last years season I also asked Benny to check on the way he has done things in the best with Hank as far as getting him ready for the season and analyzing the last couple of years. Benny thought that it might be beneficial to get some more time as far as technique in the initial practices rather than throwing him into games right away. He will get to spend a good full week here with Ben and then we will throw him in probably in Boston."

      In the Los Angeles Times, Helene Elliot writes about California prospect Emerson Etem and the workout routine he used to undertake:

      Most remarkable was the 2 ?-hour trip he made every day the last four summers from Long Beach to Venice to train with T.R. Goodman, fitness guru to a galaxy of NHL stars. To get there, Etem rollerbladed four miles, took two trains, transferred to a bus and rollerbladed the final half-mile. After a grueling, three-hour workout, he did it all in reverse.
      ...Dear god that is a commitment.

      I think that Etem goes between Anaheim at 12 and LA at 19. In fact I could see the Kings moving up to take the local product and add him to their incredible amount of talent.
