WE DON'T HAVE AN AHL TEAM if we don't sign back a few more guys. That's the point. We're going to be replacing a few players but that's the majority of our AHL team that we're missing.

So what? We're going to skate 6 players and call it day?

No, not 22 open contract spots. Bulmer, Coyle, Zucker, Granlund, Larsson, Phillips (if he joins), and Brodin will take 7 of those slots. So 15 slots.

We still need to have at least a few more players in the AHL to actually, you know play and teach the kids a few things.

Then that's meaning Palms and Lats aren't coming back if we want to keep 2 more slots open.

How about a rookie FA college kid? or two?

How about a free agent or two?

Except then we can't call them up, and there might be an issue with the CBA on that.

I think you're limited on so many (and they are limited).

So this is the list of free agents:
Latendresse
Foster
Harding
Palmieri
Christensen
Lundin
Johnson
Stoner
Kassian
Veilleux
Peters
Ortmeyer
Falk
Palmer
Fredheim
Penner
Rau
DiSalvatore
McMillan
Taffe
Almond
Endras
McIntyre
Genoway

Coming in:
Brodin
Coyle
Zucker
Bulmer
Phillips
Granlund
Larsson

Here's the players that play in the AHL on contract:
5 Jeff Penner D L 5-10 185 Apr 13, 1987 Steinbach, MB
7 Kris Fredheim D R 6-2 192 Feb 23, 1987 Campbell River, BC
12 Cody Almond C L 6-2 217 Jul 24, 1989 Calgary, AB
14 Jon DiSalvatore RW R 6-1 200 Mar 30, 1981 Bangor, ME
20 Chad Rau C R 5-11 186 Jan 18, 1987 Eden Prairie, MN
22 Jeff Taffe C L 6-3 210 Feb 19, 1981 Hastings, MN
26 David McIntyre C L 6-0 185 Feb 4, 1987 Pefferlaw, ON
27 Carson McMillan C R 6-2 194 Sep 10, 1988 Brandon, MB
39 Chay Genoway D L 5-9 177 Dec 20, 1986 Morden, MB

And these guys are either in the NHL or injured:

Latendresse
Foster
Harding
Palmieri
Christensen
Lundin
Johnson
Stoner
Kassian
Veilleux
Peters
Ortmeyer
Falk
