Yzerman vs Boucher

This prospect camp should be an interesting one...and this is a big reason why.

Yzerman has created lots of competition for roster spots on the lightning and at the same time he hasn't. Reason being hes known for saying that he wants to have a methodical approach and he wants to let the prospects develop until they are ready to make the big team.

On the other side of things you have Guy Boucher. A former major junior coach and an AHL coach who has been coaching mostly younger players for the past 4 years and has had lots of success in doing it. So who is to say he wouldn't be confident in one or two of the younger guys that he could mold into the NHL on the fly.

So come time for the end of training camp it will be interesting to see if there are some younger players that they both don't agree on that should have longer looks in preseason or even a few games to start the season because remember players can play up to 9 games and still be sent down to juniors. Say guys like  Ashton, Connolly, Hutchings, and Panik. Ashton looks like the only one who would logically make the jump because he has already been signed a contract with the lightning this time last year, and all the others would have to be signed.

Yes 9 games isn't a lot but it would be fun to see what these kids are made of and what the future holds.
