D-Camp Day 3: Picture Perfect

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, July 11, 2012

We will be live at Kettler each day at some point for Development Camp.  So follow us on Twitter @Dru90 @Camcoco10 and @TheDugsSports for live-tweets and check back all week for coverage.

Day 3 of Caps Development Camp took place in Arlington on Wednesday morning with 2 drill sessions and no scrimmage.  The crowd was light but there were still several hardcore Caps fans as well as a handful of puck bunnies.  (seriously they were discussing who was too young to date)

I spoke to one fan who took off from work in order to watch these young guys play.  He commented to me, "George is up there," and pointed above us at the railing.  The fan was mesmerized by his presence as McPhee watched like a hawk from the sky.

During the Second (B) Team drills, Forsberg was clearly who the fans had come to see.  Filip looked a little bigger with Tom Wilson not hovering around and there was just something about him that emits an aura of stardom.  The young Swede missed several open nets and dinged the post as well for the second straight day.  But those are young mistakes by a 17 year old who will have plenty of time to work on them in Sweden or the AHL or wherever he ends up over the next few years.
