New York Islanders - Training Camp 2011

A few notes from today:

As difficult as today’s skate was several players that spoke with said they felt great and were happy to get through it.

PA Parenteau, who skated in the second group arrived a bit early and watched some of what was in store. He joked that he wished he didn’t watch it.

“Now it’s all said and done,” he said. “We got through this today, and makes the group even tighter.”

As far as how he feels physically?

“I feel great. I feel unbelieveable. I’m ready to go. I’m looking forward to the season.”

Evgeni Nabokov talked about being ready for camp as well.

He talked about being in practice shape, as opposed to game shape. That being said, how did he feel today?

"I feel pretty good. Nothing is bothering me. Everything is good."

And both players were smiling. A sure sign that Jack Capuano's tough testing was worth it.

The Islanders two most prolific Tweeters, Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner shared their feelings with tweets:

From @MMoulson: Probably hardest training camp day in my 6 years of messing around this year

From @Grabs40: Glad the first day off fitness testing is down one to go..boys look strong and in great shape.. #seasonstart

Tough day on ice with testing and everything,glad it's over-but the guys battled hard and put a solid effort in #recoverytime #trainingcamp
