Tim Panaccio talked to James Van Riemsdyk today after practice and confirmed with him that he is making the season-opening road trip to Carolina and New Jersey to start off the season. This is great news, and we will have more about the rest of the roster later tonight when all details will be revealed.
The article also reports that Randy Jones was off the ice and cleared out of the dressing room before any of the other players got there. This feeds the growing Jones speculation that he indeed has been sent to the Phantoms. More on that developing story as it comes.
Roster is finalized.
As you see, it is pretty much the same guys from last year minus Jones. I’m very pleased that Pyorala and JVR both have made the team, and Danny Syvret has done very well. So well that he’s earned a roster spot. Who will be lining up with Parent on Friday night, Tollefsen or Syvret? That is one of the few questions that remains. It’s hard to believe that the season is upon us. I just got my home opener tickets last night. Look for an extended preview tomorrow or Friday.
LET’S GO FLYERS!
