(These were actually the second cuts but forgive Garrioch, he is busy traveling with the team and misses some of the going ons)
Meanwhile, the players who were demoted took the news well, Martin said.
Platil, a seventh-round selection last year who had a solid rookie camp, was told by Martin that he'll get a chance to play in Ottawa if he improves.
"I told Jan Platil that it doesn't matter where he was selected. If he wants to look at an example of guys drafted late who have made the team all he has to do is see where a guy like Karel Rachunek was selected. It's going to be up to Platil to show us he can play," said Martin.
"I thought he was pretty good in the rookie camp and we gave him the game (Friday) in Binghamton. He wasn't going to play here and I think he was anxious to get down there to earn a spot. He's an aggressive player and I thought he showed some good spunk in camp."
Martin said it's doubtful there will be any more cuts before the club leaves today for its bonding session, which will go on until Wednesday afternoon.
Of course Bruce had to add this:
One player the Senators could have a mild interest in is free agent F Steve Thomas. He's been holding discussions with two other Eastern Conference teams, including the Sabres.
