Baby Pens roster trimmed to 24

http://www.wbspenguins.com/Newsroom/...%20Reduced.asp

With Lupaschuk out for two months, these look like they'll be the final cuts.

Mornecy and Fata make the team.

Side Fata-Note: Fata absolutely destroyed a Sens forward streaking down the side board with a hipcheck. He was the only Pens D to be successful at gaining the blueline 5-on-5 (Whitney included).

With Lupy out for 2 months, that could be either a blessing or a blow to the WBS Defence core.
That now leaves Koci, Whitney, Kelleher, Fata, Scuderi, Robinson and Nasreddine. I can see the tp pairing of Whitney/Scuderi but as for the next 4 it's a crap shoot.
Hopefully Therian knows what he's doing.

Kind of disappointed Foley was all-out released. Although I guess I'm more disappointed that the AHL didn't expand the rosters further, as guys like Crampton and Rouleau deserve to be in the AHL.

I think the top 4 is set in stone and the baby Penguins should have one of the better bluelines in the AHL. Nasreddine with Whitney and Kelleher with Scuderi.

I'm not sure if I'd trust a pairing of Koci with Robinson. That's some serious lack of hockey abilities right there. I might put Fata with Koci more often than not.

Sucks for Rouleau, last season was a wash for him with injuries, and I hoped he'd make the team from camp. He'll have the first call though.

Murley-Beech-Ouellet
Surovy-Endicott-Armstrong
Abid-Talbot-Hussey
Lefebvre-Christensen-Paddock
Morency, Eaves (will slot in somewhere when he's healthy)

Whitney-Nasreddine
Kelleher-Scuderi
Fata-Koci
Robinson

Fleury-Chiodo
