The final one ... or two
Coach John Tortorella said after Saturday's game that defenseman Mike Lundin has made the opening-day roster. That leaves the question of Doug Janik and Matt Smaby, Does the Lightning keep one or both?
If Tampa Bay keeps both, that means they have decided to carry 21 players out of camp. If they keep one, it's 20. There is some uncertainty there, partially because of Chris Gratton's eye injury that kept him out of Saturday's game, and because of the depth problems and inconsistency so far showed on the blue line.
Anyway, here is how it is shaping up
Vinny Prospal-Vinny Lecavalier-Marty St. Louis
Jan Hlavac-Brad Richards-Michel Ouellet
Andreas Karlsson-Chris Gratton-Jason Ward
Nick Tarnasky-Craig MacDOnald-Andre Roy
Shane O'Brien-Filip Kuba
Brad Lukowich-Paul Ranger
Mike Lundin-Doug Janik or Matt Smaby
