Swanson sent down

Brian Swanson has been assigned to Chicago of the AHL by Atlanta. He had a pretty good camp I thought, but just isn't quite good enough. Will be good to have in case of injuries.

Swanny creates more than his share of offense at both ends of the ice, if he can get a better grip of the defensive side of his job he'll be a decent center in the nhl.

Time is running out for him though, he's getting to the career ahl'er age.

Thanks Holly, who's still ahead of him in Atlanta then? Savard, Stefan...?

Well, I wish I could list out the four centers and just leave it at that, but it isn't so cut and dried. Savard and Stefan for sure. The other natural centers in camp are Tommi Santala, Kamil Piros and Randy Robitaille. Dan Snyder is the team's 4th line center, but he'll hurt and will miss the start of the season. Bill Lindsay is sticking around, he might move to center while Snyder is out. So I guess the best answer to your question is: Savard, Stefan, probably Santala, Snyder (but Lindsay or other in the meantime).

The 25 remaining:

Scratch that, Lindsay got sent down today in the final cut.
