I was crazy impressed with Ryan Stoa's speed and Matt Duchene's persistence on the puck. The two were paired on the skills drills, and they looked good. Duchene stayed after most of the players left the ice to practice with Brett Clark. Other notables I noticed: David Marshall, Justin Mercier (who scored twice in the scrimmage with the veterans), and D guy Wes O'Neil who may end up being a good call up guy as needed. Not many people were there- anyone from Mile HIgh?
RW Brandon Yip seemed to be a scrappy seeking elbow room to play the puck, but not much in scoring. Yip scrimmaged with notables Hejduk, Wolski, Svatos, and the new enforcer Koci -who was huge. Stefan Elliot should make the team; a lot of play in front of the net. Elliott, Duchene, Stoa and Galiardi scrimmaged with Tucker, Stasny and McLeod who I was following as veteran Avs.
Just a quick rundown before Day 3. I saw one other person taking notes.
