Earlier on Wednesday, the Carolina Hurricanes made the decision to put both Brett Sutter and Andreas Nodl on waivers, meaning that the Canes are very close to trimming their roster down to the 23 player limit. Assuming they put Tuomo Ruutu on Long-Term Injured Reserve, the Canes would need to make one more cut to reach the limit and if they don't, then two players need to go. Over the past week, we've discussed who is in camp and what each player would have to do to make the team, but now we have more of a solid idea of what the roster will look like with only a couple more pieces to sort out.
Who will make it past final cuts, though? We'll preview that after the jump and talk about some possible line combinations that we could see to open camp.
Forwards: 15 on roster, 14 in camp
