I really thought that Tripp would stay up and that Simm would go down. Other than that you can bet that Rullier will get a call up by the end of the season.

Tripp getting sent down really surprised me. I guess the last couple of games and the last week, he's been surpassed by the other players. Too bad. At 25 years old, I was hoping he could win a spot with the big club. He's a hard worker that drove towards the net...maybe he'll come up later on in the season and get a chance. I'll be pulling for this guy...

I know the Kings' site says they have 12 defensemen left, but I don't remember any of the above d-men being cut. Maybe they count Norton as a forward and do not count Aulin :dunno:.

Most likely. Aulin and Cammalleri will start the season on IR. Same with some people as well. So that will open up some spots.

Personally I think last nights lineup was as close as you are going to get to opening night with a couple of changes.

JF, here's my best guess... based pn the players that are "eligible" for the waiver draft:

Steve Kelly
Chris Schmidt
Brad Chartrand
Jon Sim
Jerred Smithson
Maxim Kuznetsov
Brad Norton
Bryan Muir
Richard Seeley
Jason Holland
Pavel Rosa
John Tripp

I think Kuznetzov not getting into camp hurts him here... Norton is versatile and tough and therefore it's questionable if he'll be left out there, but Brennan and Flinn aren't eligible for the draft and therefore I think it makes sense to dangle Norton.

Although Lubos Bartecko is a possible keeper as well.

I don't think Huet is eligible for the waiver draft (could be wrong about that) so the Kings will protect Roman (obviously) and Hnilicka and pretty much keep their goaltending in tact.

Frolov is ineligible for this draft by ONE GAME I believe. :yo:

I might have some ineligible guys on this list... I didn't go into heavy research on it, so I apologize, but you didn't expect to see Jason Allison or Deader on this list anyway, so if I'm off, I'm not off by too much.
