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

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
