The basement of GT Prospect HQ has been flooded for the last couple of days, keeping your GTPD and Mrs. GTPD quite busy cleaning up the mess. That's still in progress, but we've managed to convince Mrs. GTPD to give us a few minutes to throw this little article up on the site.

The Blues' entry at Traverse City isn't setting the world on fire just yet,with two one-goal losses in as many games, but the tournament isn't necessarily about winning for the Blues. Rather, the goal is to get the prospects playing together, against their peers, for evaluation purposes. And in this, the Blues have succeeded thus far, despite a 4-3 loss to Dallas' kiddie corps on Saturday, and a 3-2 loss to Minnesota yesterday.

First-rounders Patrik Berglund, T.J. Oshie, and Alex Pietrangelo are playing well for the Blues, by all accounts, and 2008 draftee James Livingston currently leads the team in scoring with a goal and an assist in the two games. 2005 late-round gem Nikolai Lemtyugov has a pair of assists as well.

Remember, as always, "if we do not prepare for ourselves the role of the anvil, there will be nothing left but that of the anvil." Auf wiedersehen.
