It's not scrimmage points

Its their dev camp competition thing where you rack up points all week for shit. At least that's my guess given it's their first scrimmage and it says this is the scoreboard going into the day.

They probably give out points for team building and such. He probably got them for his healthy diet or whatever.

Shero apparently said he expects at least 2 of the players from Dev. camp to be on the NHL roster this year

Anderson and McLeod/JQ?

Has to be 2 of those 3. For the teams sake I hope JQ makes the roster.

Julie, Morreale and Corey are all great. The first two only cover the team a portion of the time, unfortunately.

Mike's busy with the NHL, but he genuinely enjoys covering the team. The Star Ledger and Bergen Record are both ambivalent to the team.

Speaking of hefty lads

Good article on the athletic about Quenneville today. His trainer says he’s just got one of those bodies where if he takes a couple weeks off he’s fucked

Also said he trained like an animal prior to his draft year and it obviously paid off. Then said the subsequent summers he thinks he got “comfortable”. Says it doesn’t seem as if he wanted to put in the extra work sometimes. Mentioned to Johnny that other pros he trains show up for training the same way they left the previous summer (meaning they maintain it all year) and he wants him to be that same way. He wants him to start being a pro.

“There are some athletes that can take a couple months off and look fine. He’s just not fortunate enough to be able to do that, and I think he’s starting to realize that now.“

His goal is 210 lbs and 9% body fat, and he showed up to dev camp this week at 210 and 9.3%. Doesn’t want to see him ballooning to 225, 13%, 14% during the season either. He’s been doing “everything he’s been asked and more” this summer, training five days a week and working with a nutritionist. Does not want him to get down into the 8% range cause that’s just not his body type and he’d get lethargic and weak.

“This summer, he’s been phenomenal with every single extra thing I ask him to do, his diet, everything. He’s working his butt off.”

Raw ability is there as his numbers show in the minors hopefully he understands the work he needs to put in. He could still be a player for us.

Boqvist and Lias Andersson (Rangers 1st round pick in '17) had almost identical point totals this past year in the SEL

Boqvist had 13 in 23
Andersson had 14 in 22
