Unsure if long term injury reserve lists will be used.
I am curious what would happen in the case that a team has more than 21 skaters still on the roster and eligible to play after this season. Would they have to cut some players to get down to 21 or would they be able to remain above the cap until enough guys graduate or move on to get to 21.

For example, say after this season UNB still has 22 players eligible to return after this season...would they have to cut someone to get down to 21? Or could they carry 22 until more guys graduate after the end of next season? If it is the latter maybe that is why teams are bringing in fewer players, in preparation of next season.
