Maple Leafs Camp Cuts

The Leafs have cut goalie Scott Clemmensen, forwards Jiri Tlusty, Tony Salmelainen, Jeremy Williams, Ben Ondrus, Simon Gamache and defenceman Jay Harrison…All but Tlusty MUST clear waivers.

It’s really too bad about Tlusty – although a solid year with the Marlies can’t hurt.

Ditto for Gamache; they both played well enough to earn a roster spot; but with so many one-way contracts, NHL experience seems to have won out in Leaf-Land.

    It'll be interesting if Gamache and salmelainan and gamache and williams get picked up. Which theres a good chance at least two of them will. Chicago might grab Williams, Gamache might fit in Phoenix.

    pretty sure they' all clear. A lot of people seemed to love Gamache, I wasn't as impressed, he doesn't seem to be any better than Pohl, Dev or Bates.  He'll get his chance tho, as far as I see it he's the leafs first option as a call up.

    Dont forget everyone is trimming their rosters down too. I saw that Pittsburgh trimmed down to 22 so maybe they'll take a shot at Williams.

    That 4th line will be a good grind line. I expect Belak to play in one of the Ottawa games this week maybe to tangle with McGratton.

    The Leafs must make room for injured players when they become healthy. The most likely candidates too be put on waivers are Bates Battaglia and Wade Belak. Wade Belak would likely clear waivers and be sent down to the Toronto Marlies. Kris Newbury and Jiri Tlusty will be among the first players to be called up in case of an injury.
