Erlendsson: Janik Makes the Team, Delmore on Waivers?

[url=http://www.tboblogs.com/index.php/sports/related/C189/]On his blog, Erik Erlendsson speculates[/url] that Doug Janik will make the Lightning's opening night roster and that Andy Delmore may have possibly been put through waivers today with a view toward reassigning him to Springfield.
