Wouldn't something like this be perfect p.r. for the franchise to invite season ticket holders and bloggers to? Seems it would be ideal to draw interest and at least attempt to prove that the general manager isn't a complete fool...

I agree it would be a good idea to allow fans into main camp for certain sessions, but this camp is intended to give some young guys a taste of the NHL experience under controlled circumstances...some of them will never play pro so it serves NO purpose for fans to be inside the laboratory.
