Sucks to see Devin Setoguchi be cut, he would've given us PGers someone to root for,
But I was supprised to see John Tavares and Angelo Esposito be cut, they are the young superstars in the making for our country, why not give them a chance now? They gave that chance to Lindros, Crosby...

As Hartsberg said they were starting to lag behind at a higher level. They aren't ready yet.

Final cuts announced - see TSN.

Bourdon, of course, is on the team. I'm slightly surprised to see that Letang was named Captain, though.
