A few quick notes after the first 30 minutes of training camp:
*Tomas Fleischmann has some sort of an injury and won't skate today. A team spokesman said GM George McPhee will have an update for the media after he meets with the medical staff.
*Eric Fehr is on the ice, but isn't assigned to a line. He's also the only player wearing a yellow jersey. So that presumably means he also has not received medical clearance to participate fully.
*Despite seeking a deal to play this season in Europe, Michael Nylander is expected to skate with Group C, which hits the ice at 2:15. He's also expected to address reporters later.
*Coach Bruce Boudreau's first line as of Day 1: Alex Ovechkin-Nicklas Backstrom-Mike Knuble. Boudreau had toyed with the idea of going with Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin. But he's apparently decided against it -- for now.
