They also only have 19 players signed overall (again according to Capgeek) so I expect them to add a dman as well.

Obviously there will be some minor trades and some waiver pickups as some teams have too few and others have too many bodies (Anaheim is listed as having 26... Detroit 25).
Bobby Mac saying Pitkanen won't be ready and that it's the same injury that ended someone's career awhile back, could be pretty bad news.

I don't think CAR will be too worried about numbers though. Will give kids a shot and then as the Isles showed us they have the waiver wire.
