Cap Space Clear-out

Well, the 23 man roster has been finalized and we are on the eve of the eve of opening night against the Bruins. I cannot wait for the Jackets to be back in action.

Only a couple of small surprises on the roster:

  • Gregory Campbell was waived, cleared and assigned to Cleveland (AHL)
  • Lukas Sedlak makes the roster and draws fourth line center duties
  • Markus Nutivaara & Scott Harrington both made the roster at the D position

Maybe my biggest surprise was double clutching a Dispatch headline that read “Dubois up, Wennberg sent down….” before reading on to find it most likely is a move that frees up cap space due to Dubois contract ability to make more in bonuses (2.5 million vs 475 thousand).

Whew, thought my breakout player of the year prediction was almost toast before the season even got here. See you on Thursday Wennberg!

Tomorrow brings predictions for the first thirteen games and then on to opening night on Thursday!!!!!
