Rangers Development Camp - Update from Calgary (II)
/ New York Rangers
With only one more week left in the Rangers' five-week Development Camp at the University of Calgary, Vice President of Player Development Tom Renney continues to like what he sees from the Blueshirt prospects.
"The camp continues to go well," said Renney, who recently returned from scouting the Eight Nations Tournament in Slovakia last week. "The amazing feature of this entire effort is exactly that. From day one to now the players have applied themselves in all components of the camp. A dry land training routine that is diversified and extrememy challenging has forced them to overcome physical pain and the uncomfortable feeling of being outside their emotional comfort level. The classroom sessions have been informative and very interactive, which is a testimony to the players. Without their cooperation and the proper attitude they bring, these sessions are a complete waste of time."
"Finally what we have done on the ice is clearly of benefit to the players because we are seeing improvement every day. This camp is not easy. It is long and hard but it has taken the players to a new threshold of committment ... the kind of committment we want them to display as Rangers when their time comes."
