Roster cuts are official

The Post-Gazette has confirmed the earlier report by BlackAndGoldInsider.com.
  • Staal and Letang made the team (assuming they sign contracts by 5:00 pm today). Both can be returned to juniors before playing their 10th game.
  • Welch, Talbot, Carcillo, Pivko and Stone go to Wilkes-Barre.
  • 3 goalies make the roster - Fleury (who will start the opener), Thibault and Sabourin.
I can't imagine them keeping three goalies longer term. If Letang doesn't stick, expect to see Welch back in Pittsburgh, though it's probably not bad for him to be the #1 defensemen in Wilkes-Barre for a little while.
