Quick Update for the Weekend

A few quick notes before I go listen to Rich Harden's debut for the cubs...

Joe Palmer (yet again no bio page - but he's likely to go back to Ohio State for his junior year anyway) and Antti Niemi had another great game in prospects camp, both shutting out the other team during their ice time. Red went on to win 4-2 though off goals by Radja (who had two), Sweatt, and Reddick (Empty Net). Pleckaitis and Leblanc scored for the white team.

Akim Aliu found two different dance partners this time in Tyler McNeely and Dan Bertram.

Don't wear baggy clothes if you're going to try out of the Ice Crew... that's just poor form

James Mirtle ranks Jason Williams as one of the best depth forwards still available. With the signing of Campbell and no movement yet - I'd say his days as a Hawk are done but he'd be great for another team still looking for someone to lead a PP.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Niemi back up Huet, with Crawford ready in Rockford.

Sweatt has looked nice, from all accounts. I'd like to see him get a shot this fall.

I'm liking Aliu to get a shot - he's clearly got talent and he's added size over the past year. He seems like a good tough player to have on your side.
