Training Camp Focus

I have watched many Oilers Training camps in person over the years and noticed that the type of play and levels of compete we see in Training Camp translate directly to the results that years edition of the team produces by the end of the season. An NHL Training camp is not a practice. It is not preperation for the vets,in todays game it is a real life hands on test,an opportunity to self-valuate your progress as a professional and possibly manifest yourself a job immediatly. A team that cannot properly valuate and manage its Training Camp cannot possibly be in a position to correctly valuate its players and managment tactics consistantly. We have heard rumors that this years edition of training Camp will be competative,but do we really have an accurate definition of Mac-Ts vision and interpretation of "competative",will jobs be won and lost during Camp? Will Vets and Rookies be taking the experience with an equal dose of seriousness? Will Managment have the foresight to make as much of the experience as possible a direct simulation of NHL conditions both pre-game and game circumstances? or will we see some bagskates and some high-speed drills with a few half-assed scrimmages as we have from time to time in the past? Training Camp will Mirror what we can expect from the roster during the regular season if history has anything to say about it. Is it game on for the season or game over before we even start? We are now in the 'show me'stage of the 2013-2014 NHL season.
