I don't know how this usually goes during a lockout that ends in the middle of a season, but I find it funny that while Lehner and Benoit were named to the team, Silfverberg wasn't. Maybe somebody knows something we don't? I definentely think JS deserved to be listed, and Benoit and Lehner made it even though they are still up at training camp is kinda odd.
If I had to put a wager, I'd say that they didn't name him because they knew there was zero chance he is coming back to the AHL.

No sense in naming a guy you know for a fact won't show up. Giving the spot to someone else who is more likely to play in the game, I have no issue with.
