The "training camp" for Bridgeport players (making the NYI) was their first 35 games. That was their chance to prove they are better, more deserving than the guys who were on NHL rosters last year (and years prior)

That it looks like the team thoroughly plans on leaving particularly Donovan and Nino on the farm for the whole ride this season - until further injuries dictate otherwise - is something we'll just have to respect as being a managerial decision, even if we might think these two have more to offer right now than others who are participating in the mini-camp.
My biggest surprise is that McDonald is hanging around. I truly thought his role was only going to be a purely AHL one.
I agree that a healthy Joensuu and Bailey would be two more call-ups that would have stayed in BP, most likely.
Though, I believe Ullstrom will make the team even after those two are healthy.
McDonald (like Landry) might just be called up so they can be waived if another player is picked up on waivers. Like Wishart was waived after claiming Finley. I don't think McDonald or Landry or Wishart will be on the opening night roster. Unless it's as a #7 in the WaitingForVisnovsky scenario.
I think Snow will add one more dman either before the first game or once he knows for sure that Visnovsky isn't coming. That could be a Mark Eaton or Griffin Reinhart (for a few games) or Matt Donovan or someone via trade.
Streit - Martinek - Hamonic - MacDonald - Carkner - Finley/Visnovsky
