The Departed

I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the opening night roster versus what is being iced today.

As you can see GM Scott Howson is definitely putting his stamp on the team just by the amount of names that have left.

Expect this lineup to get an even further overhaul this summer.

*note players in blue are no longer with the organization

Opening night roster:

Nash Fedorov Modin
Zherdev Peca Vyborny
Chimera Molhotra Fritsche
Boll Novotny

Foote Hejda
Klesla Hainsey
Westcott Russell


Scratched: Shelley, Brule, Glencross


Tonight's roster:

Nash Peca Brule
Chimera Novotny Zherdev
