Three of those 9 players aren't guaranteed to be on their opening night roster.
We have 9 players that need to clear waivers to go to the A, be sent back to Juniors, or are just guaranteed roster spots. That's 9 players that are going to be in camp with the ability to make the roster and if they don't, be lost to the organization for good or for the year. Not sure Sangs or MAG passes through waivers. Although GMs seem to let most guys pass through out of a gentlemens agreement after camp.

To me it looks like a trade is coming or Murphy is going back. But, we actually may carry 8 D to start the season because you know Murphy will get his 9 games in.
