Training Camp Update

  • Semin, Gleason, Ruutu and Lindholm missed practice again. Semin and Lindholm skated before the session.
  • Muller said the players are still day-to-day but couldn’t guarantee they would be in the opening night lineup: This could be awful news for the Canes. However, they still have over a week until the first game.
  • Muller also said he likes Riley Nash at center and would allow Lindholm to move to winger.
  • Terry moved up to the first line with Staal and Semin: Like Bowman before him, it can only be a good thing for Terry that he is playing with the top line.
  • Bowman played with Sutter and Westgarth, while Dvorak moved to the Nash-Skinner line.
  • There were no changes to the defense pairings.
