Washington’s hockey bloggers, new and established, delivered some fantastic coverage of the just completed Capitals’ Development Camp. Here are some of our favorite files, with a last word from our new favorite blogger, Big Joe Finley.
Rock The Red was able to generate interviews with campers Andy Miele, Braden Holtby, Joe Finley, Samuel Carrier, and Brett Flemming. Punch In The Face Blog compiled a helpful guide to identifying many camp participants, especially those added late.
Russian Machine Never Breaks captured, in words and pictures, a novel off-ice moment last week when two of the Caps’ Russian prospects, newly drafted Evgeny Kuznetsov and Stanislav Galiev, assisted a group of students from the University of Maryland studying Russian.
We were especially impressed by the volume and quantity of photographs captured at camp throughout the week. We take pictures when we can and feel we are getting a bit better with them, but there are other bloggers on the beat that simply excel at it. Some publish pics on their blogs while others share their shots via Twitter or Flickr. Take a look at these and keep in mind that as far as we know, only one is a “professional” photographer.
- @CapsInPictures attended camp every day and posted her pics on her blog appropriately titled Caps in Pictures.
- Heather Mabb is a teacher in D.C., and when her schedule allows, a photographer. She posts her shots on Flickr. Her shots from the midweek scrimmage are here.
- Kelly Stoner keeps the women’s point of view going strong posting her stuff on Flickr.
- Neil Greenberg is one of the guys behind Russian Machine Never Breaks, but this week he was also helping out Michael Hoffman of the Washington Examiner.
- With Neil moonlighting, Addison Huber focused his lens for RMNB as well as posting on Flickr.
- Mike Rannells is behind the relatively new blog Fight For Old DC and captured some wonderful shots, particularly of camp’s first round of fisticuffs. Those that did not show up on the blog were placed in his Flickr account.
