Gordon is out for Thursday per the updates; but will travel as he is possible for Saturday. Semin is questionable for Thursday due to illness.

IMO, if he is sick, the best thing is to keep him away from the team, locker room, travel on plane, hotel, etc. If he gets better they can have him meet them on Long Island for Saturday's game.

So do they call up 2 forwards or call up 1 and play Sloan as a 4th line forward for a game... sounds like the plan is to call guys up.

Of note, there is cap room due to the Backstrom bonus cushion and Fleischmann on LTIR at the moment. Still if they call up 2, the lower cap hit guys will likely get the call-ups. I have to run the numbers to approximate how much room they would actually have to use against 2 call-ups.
