Barring any sudden trades, the Panthers roster pretty much became set on Thursday. The team cut Dennis Shvidki loose and sent five guys (Anthony Stewart, David Booth, Janis Sprukts, Alexei Semenov and Ari Vallin) to their minor league affiliate in Rochester. The Americans will also be getting Florida goalie Craig Anderson any minute now. I always hate to see guys leave, but for selfish reasons. I like talking to those guys. But they're going to get more playing time in Rochester, so good for them. And a couple of them, at least, will be back at some point this season.
