Six must clear waivers after Penguins' camp cuts

| Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010

The Penguins made 11 cuts Wednesday, trimming their training-camp roster to 30 players.

The cuts were forwards Chris Conner, Nick Johnson, Brett Sterling, Joe Vitale and Tim Wallace; defensemen Robert Bortuzzo, Corey Potter, Brian Strait and Steve Wagner; goaltenders John Curry and Brad Thiessen.

All players were assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL. Conner, Curry, Potter, Sterling, Wagner and Wallace must clear waivers by Thursday.

The Penguins do not practice today. They play at Chicago on Friday and at Detroit on Sunday to close their exhibition schedule. Coach Dan Bylsma said he would like to take between 25 and 27 players into the weekend.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
