Flyers Camp: Voracek gets chance to replace Leino?
VOORHEES, N.J. -- So we're here at the Flyers SkateZone in Voorhees, N.J., for the opening day of Flyers training camp.

The place is absolutely packed as the organization has plenty of activities for the fans. While it's still early, reporters present here in the press area are saying coach Peter Laviolette is already deviating a bit from what the veteran coach had on his board yesterday.

Right off the bat, Laviolette has Danny Briere centering Jakub Voracek and Scott Hartnell. So it's possible Flyers' fans will see offseason acquisition Voracek replacing Ville Leino on that line. There's Claude Giroux in the middle between James van Riemsdyk and Jaromir Jagr. Blair Betts is the pivot between Jody Shelley and Andreas Nodl and Michael Nylander was with Wayne Simmonds and Max Talbot.

Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky are the two goalies on hand in the first session.
Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
