The first one bites the dust...

Darren Dreger has just tweeted that Simon Gagne was injured the first day of camp and is not expected to return. Jeez, maybe they were right about the whole insurance issue?

I doubt this seriously impedes his chances of making the team, but as a guy who's definitely on the bubble, it's got to kill him to not be out there.

For more hockey twittering goodness, you should try following @CTVOHockey, who is live blogging the orientation camp for all of us to enjoy.

  2. Another anonymous commenter. Hiding behind the anonymous label is gutless and what you say will be disregarded by not only us, but Stevie Y, Coach Babcock and anyone else that makes the decisions on this team!

  3. Mr. anonymous is right...not one of those names is up for debate to make the team...except for:

    Cam Ward
    Mike Green
    Dion Phaneuf
    Jonathan Toews
    Brenden Morrow
    Joe Thornton
    Dany Heatley...and
    Shane Doan

    ...which makes him...dead wrong!!
