Repeatedly throughout the series of Town Hall Meetings held over the past two weeks, Lightning GM Jay Feaster was asked about the makeup of his roster. He stated he fully expects to have 3 goalies (Denis, Holmqvist, and Burke) on 1-way contracts come to Training Camp and remain on the roster through pre-season. Said all 7 defensemen on 1-way contracts are expected to be on the Opening Night roster. Offered that he anticipates making no more moves nor signings before camp. Clarified he prefers to have enough cap space to recall 2 players as play/injuries warrant. Mentioned he expects to carry 21 at the NHL level, which translates to only 11 forwards.

With a number of recent signings by the Springfield Falcons and Johnstown Chiefs, I figured now would be an excellent time to take another stab at the team rosters at all three levels of the organization. [b]Updated: 9/27 to include signing of John Adams[/b]

:P [url=http://www.cbc.ca/cp/hockey/060823/h082318.html]Interesting perspective agent Mark Gandler has.......[/url] Mark Gandler, the agent who represents those players, says Russia is an attractive option for "young, vibrant talent which is not properly treated (by NHL teams)." Feaster is also quoted about R2 but this paragraph is the one takes the cake IMO.... That Artukhin, Grebeshkov and Bergenheim are Gandler's clients is just a coincidence, the agent said from his New Jersey office. He vehemently denies the rumour that he was getting a cut from Russian league clubs to deliver them NHL players.

Former Lightning center Martin Cibak has signed with Vastra Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League. Cibak, who was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Lightning this summer, had two goals and six assists in 65 games for Tampa Bay this past season. He had one assist in six games for Tampa in their Stanley Cup run of 2004. Cibak essentially lost his job with the Lightning when management decided they wanted more physical play and offense from the fourth line next season.
