Preissing and Davison have also made the Sharks opening night roster. One of the two will ikely be sent to Cleveland once Stuart is off of IR.

6. Carolina : Staal, Heerema


Heerema is now with St. Louis and according to reports is expected to start the season on Weight's wing until Boguniecki comes back from injury...

14. L.A. : Brown, Grebeshhov, Gleason

Thanks for any info. you have !!! :)
Grebeshkov was sent down
Pirnes and Strbak are still on the roster. They are both Overage Euros, I don't know if yu would count them as prospects

8. Colorado : J.M Liles, Svatos, 2 others (Ballard ?)
10. Dallas : Miettinen, Jokinen
21. Ott. : Spezza


Calgary: Kobasew is starting on 2nd line RW
Chicago: Babchuck was sent down
Coloado: Liles, Svatos, Sauve, McCormick
Dallas: Daley Should make it but Erskine's contract is only one way so Daley will be in Utah
Ott: Denis Hamel or Antoine Vermett will be on LW until Fisher comes back.

Just what i have heard

Add Telqvist for Toronto, although he'll be the back-up.

Oilers:

Stoll, Torres, Bergeron/Luoma (not decided yet), Sarno (if youwant to call him a prospect)...

Sarno was just put on waivers so they could send him back to the minors. You can scratch him off the list. That means both Luoma and Bergeron are on the opening day 23 man roster...

Pitkanen for Philly.

What is Bouguniecki's injury ? How long is he expected out for ? Thanks, i have him in my draft :)

Well for Dallas, Im not sure Ott is still counted as a rookie, but he will be in the lineup..and by Jokinen, if you mean Jussi Jokinen(since he's the only Jokinen I know the Stars have), he is in Finland this year. Also, as a previous poster mentioned...Daley should be there, but because they gave erskine a 1 way contract and he'd have to clear waivers, Daley will start in Utah.

Orpik, Fleury, Caron, Malone, Murley and Koltsov for the Penguins

Abid too if you count him as a prospect.

Add Alexander Semin to the Caps...and maybe Boyd Gordon depending on the final roster cut tonight.

All three first rounders from 2002 could be on the opening night roster...

:yo:

No Dome for Calgary, add Kobesew

Spiller for Phoenix

Spiller for Phoenix

The Coyotes have 7 defensemen. Francis will likely dress 7, but if he only dressed 6, Spiller may be the one who sits.

You got it right as far as Montreal is concerned.


The last cut has been made earlier today, and Chris Higgins wasn't sent down to the AHL, and will likely play the first 2 games of the regular season. Same goes for Micheal Ryder, who by the way was the Habs' best scorer in pre-season games... as for Komisarek, he's pretty much a lock for the first game, in Ottawa.

Just announced:

Alex Semin, Steve Eminger, Boyd Gordon make the Caps last cut.

Gordon should last at least until Nylander returns...cool news for the Caps..finally going with the youth!

Hainsey and Ward ( Rookie? ) are still there so maybe.

Islanders still have Sean Bergenheim, Justin Papineau, Justin Mapletoft and Trent Hunter up. There are room for three of them right now.

Once Weinhandl comes back (2 weeks I believe) and Scatchard is ready (day to day) two more will probably go to Bridgeport.

Some are assuming Bergenhiem will be sent back to Finland after a 10 game stint or so, leaving Papineau as the primary offensive callup.

There are six rookies for the Habs:

Komisarek, Higgins, Hainsey, Ward, Hossa and Ryder.

Higgins and Komisarek will be scratches for the opener. Hainsey will play, although I would bet a 2$ that in the end, Komisarek stays and Hainsey goes down when Francis Bouillon comes back from his injury.

Starting lineup

Hossa - Ribeiro - Zednik
Bulis - Perreault - Audette
Sundstrom - Juneau - Dackell
Dwyer - Ward - Ryder

Markov - Rivet
Souray - Quintal
Hainsey - Brisebois

Blues kids:

Sejna 2nd line w/ Weight, Rycroft - first line until Mel returns w/ rib injury, Heerema 2nd line until bogie returns, Danton (is he a rookie??) on the 4th.

Walker is injured but expected to return to the D

Santala played pretty well and X is a rock. Piros is OK.

As far as I know, Poloushin is playing in Russia. He wasn't even in training camp.

Here's a link showing that he has already played in Russia.

Dimitry Afanasenkov made the Lightning pretty much out of nowhere. Scored a goal opening night and has been playing on Lecavalier's line.

Like I wrote in the story... Polushin is still in Russia playing for CSKA. He has 5 goals and 7 points in 12 games so far.
