Well, the cuts sure came yesterday, didn't they? Trimming the roster by 6 players has allowed us to much more easily see who is making the team (unless Gillis is just pulling moves to get under the cap for opening night, in order to then put Alexandre Burrows and Sami Salo on LTIR and bring other people back....). We will hear more on that in the next week, as well as more info on that little captaincy issue we've been discussing all summer...
(By the way, in case anyone's wondering, Bob McKenzie just confirmed that Shane O`Brien and Darcy Hordichuk bith cleared waivers. UPDATE: According to a couple sources now, Joel Perrault is now on waivers.)

Added: From @benkuzma: "Flames sign former Canuck Morrison to one-year, $750,000 US contract." Alas, this is what we didn't want to see...
