I'd guess they're done outside of a filler here or there.

The battle for 6/7/8 defenseman should be a good one at camp this season.

Ya that is going to be a fun battle to watch. I think they are done too. Going to go young on the blue line, and I think that is probably the right decision. I am a big Klein fan though, so I may be biased.

IMO done UNLESS something really interesting comes along by way of waiver wire during/just after camp. Young blue line can be bolstered by experenced and highly productive offense and THEN added to by late season aquisistion if needed. It's time to go with the ones we raised!

does this include the new coach that everyone will be screaming for about 50 games into the season?

I have a feeling that we will have one or two unrestricted veteran free agents in camp on tryout contracts, but otherwise...yes...we are set.

Here's what I think our training camp roster will look like...obviously I don't know who the AHL free agents will be that will round out the roster, but...

Goalies (4):
Tomas Vokoun
Chris Mason

Pekka Rinne
Karl Goehring

Defenseman (13):
Dan Hamhuis
Kimmo Timonen
Marek Zidlicky
Ryan Suter
Shea Weber
Kevin Klein
Greg Zanon

Nolan Yonkman
Sheldon Brookbank
Ryan Parent
Cody Franson
Mikko Lehtonen
Ville Koistinen

Centers (9):
Jason Arnott
David Legwand
Josef Vasicek
Jerred Smithson
Vernon Fiddler
Scott Nichol

Cal O'Reilly
Greg Classen
Shane Endicott

Left Wings (7):
Paul Kariya
Scott Hartnell
Scottie Upshall
Darcy Hordichuk

Ramzi Abid
John Vigilante
Daniel Widing

Right Wings (7):
Martin Erat
Steve Sullivan
Jordin Tootoo
Patrick Leahy

Alexander Radulov
Brandon Segal
Paul Brown

My best educated guess on who will make the team are the players highlighted in bold. My only concern with the players that would have to clear waivers to get down to Milwaukee would be Leahy...so...I think he might be sent down at the end of camp while everyone is looking to trim their rosters and not necessarily add anyone.

I'd feel better if we had one more experienced d-man...I think that's our only semi-hole.

Not that I think it will happen, but how long into the season do you think we would go if the young D struggles early on before we make a move for a Vet?

I think, in a perfect world, there hope is that Vokoun has no lingering effects from the blood clots.....Rinne plays lights out in Milwaukee and also if called up, making Mason expendable midway or late in the season.....then if they need a vet d-man, potentially Mason could be used as a potential asset to acquire him......
