Rochester can't function if they pull all their prospects and guys on two-ways. I'm assuming they've evaluated guys the last few months and leave guys like McNabb on the farm.
You are right. The games played by the guys on the Amerks is a better evaluation of prospects than a regular (much less shortened) training camp.
You will see a very lean training camp roster. Camp is short and they need to hit the ground running (or sprinting). They may bring Grigorenko in. Brennan will be there because his AHL only contract will be void now that the lockout is over. He will need to clear waivers to be assigned to Rochester. McNabb is not going anywhere.
