But will they?
In a story on NHL.com, On Frozen Pond pal Corey Masisak put together his list of the players he feels will be in Ottawa.
The only Panthers selection: Brian Campbell.
I do feel that Corey is right in that Campbell will get the call. But there are other Panthers who deserve a ring as well.
How about Kris Versteeg? Jason 'The G-52 Bomber' Garrison?
I would have thought Stephen Weiss would have made it because of the value he carries to the Panthers, but his recent dry spell -- he hasn't scored since getting two against Washington on Dec. 5 -- is probably going to be his undoing.
The NHL will announce the rest of the roster -- six players have already been selected -- tomorrow.
PS: I also think Erik Gudbranson is a lock to be one of the rookie selections being from Ottawa and all.
