    I like Lovejoy as a solid prospect on the blueline. He's not going to be a superstar or anything (doesn't have the raw skill of Letang or Goligoski), but he is a kind of guy who will stick up here in time on the basis of smarts and hard work (an overachieving type like Scuderi was).

    While I felt both Guenin and Engelland looked better than Lovejoy in camp, Lovejoy played a solid defense the last time he was called up earlier in the year. From what I'm hearing, they were not exactly thrilled with Skoula's play in that Philadelphia game.

    Then again, the defense and goaltending in general looked horrible in that Philly game, so I guess it's kind of unfair to single out Skoula. While offseason signings like Rupp, McKee and Johnson have gained the most attention, Skoula has quietly filled in when needed and has done an admiral job for the most part in my opinion.
