Some interesting names in there, even if it is mighty early for this. Jason King in Anaheim might just make the team in a scoring role, as the Ducks are going to be looking for more scoring without Selanne and Penner this season.

Mitchell, meanwhile, could be another of those midround picks from the NCAA that the Sharks are becoming known for, including guys like Matt Carle and Joe Pavelski. San Jose's one of the few contending teams with a possible spot to win among the forwards in camp.

Kyle Calder could be in for a big year in a scoring role with the Kings, while Johan Franzen likely sees more ice time in Detroit. Kyle Cumiskey's a smallish, offensive defender who could make the Avs. Another Kyle, Brodziak with the Oilers, will likely make the team in a depth role.

A lot of these guys are youngsters still headed to the minors: Wirtanen, Evans, Foligno, Setoguchi and Stuart.

Brennan Evans was actually #43 Lukas Kaspar. They were the line of the game for San Jose, Kaspar, Devin Setoguchi, and University of Vermont alum Torrey Mitchell. They made a mistake on the NHL game summary.

What makes you assume Colin Stuart can't make the Thrashers lineup? They have a spot on the checking line to fill.

I've got guys like Krog taking that role. I don't think Stuart showed enough in the AHL to earn a spot this fall, but we'll see.
