After their longest summer in recent years, training camp finally started for the Vancouver Canucks. This year, the team is holding camp in Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan.

I thought about asking Tracy, who is originally from Vernon, if she wanted to drive up this weekend to watch camp to visit her family. Unfortunately, other commitments came up and we now have to stay in town. However, if any of you happen to make it there, please feel free to send an email on how camp is going or leave a comment below.

More camp details here. (Apparently, Sunday's blue/silver game is a hot ticket.)

After roster cuts earlier this week, Jason King's move to Sweden and Drew MacIntyre's acquisition from the Detroit Red Wings, here is a list of players scheduled to be there:

4 Bourdon, Luc
64 Coulombe, Patrick

Training camp should have a different feel this year. After missing the playoffs last season, the Canucks enter camp with somewhat lower expectations. The roster has been completely overhauled - 14 players from last year's roster are gone - and everyone is getting a fresh start. In fact, with the exception of the starting goaltender position, new coach Alain Vigneault is not sure himself of how his lines are going to looking like.

Brad Zeimer (Vancouver Sun) has more camp questions here. We'll find out the answers in the next couple of weeks.
