Clarification on Traverse City Rules

According to a press release by the Atlanta Thrashers regarding this year's Traverse City tournament, [url=]these are the eligibility rules for this year's tournament:[/url] "Per tournament rules, each team may only have a maximum of four players with one year of professional experience each. In order to participate, all skaters must have been born no later than 1983; goalies are exempt from this restriction." As a consequence of this rule, [url=pj-atherton]PJ Atherton[/url] will not be eligible to play in this year's tournament (without an exception being made, which is altogether possible in these tournaments). However, [url=andy-rogers]Andy Rogers[/url] will be eligible to play under this scenario, as will [url=justin-keller]Justin Keller[/url]. [url=mike-egener]Mike Egener[/url] remains inelligible because he has played two years of pro. Because of the goaltender exemptions the team could take [url=morgan-cey]Morgan Cey[/url], [url=gerald-coleman]Gerald Coleman[/url] or [url=jonathan-boutin]Jonathan Boutin[/url] to Traverse City along with Ramo, Helenius and Beech, although I am still betting they will only carry three goaltenders.
