That leaves Henry, Pettinger, and Verot as the final cuts.
Does anyone see this any different?

10 Defensemen are left for 7 spots...

1. Gonchar 5. Doig
2. Boumedienne 6. Berry

Fortin and Yonkman will end training camp on IR and both will start the season on conditioning assignments at Portland. Kwiatkowski will be sent to Portland if he clears waivers.
Is this pretty much what everyone sees?
OK with most of this, but may I add that Henry will be there and maybe Pettinger. I know Semin and Gordon have great skill and upside, but you can't get to small as a team. We need the big guys as well, Peat and/or Henry can't do the fighting by themselves.

Gordon goes to Portland and Maybe Semin spends another year in Russia. He must learn some english. Also, Fortin will go to Portland on conditoning stint only if he agrees to it, or he could tell the Caps to put him on waivers. He doesn't have to report to Portland if they don't put him on waivers. Yonkman would have to go as he doesn't have to clear to be sent down.
