Certainly some tough decisions were made and it will only get harder for the Blades staff as the competition increases. The roster has been cut down to 37 which has been split into two teams for another game on Tuesday afternoon. The “blue & white” game is slated for 1:30pm at SaskTel Centre. Although camp is technically finished, the idea is to get the players up to a pre-season level of play before heading to Regina on Thursday to open the exhibition schedule against the Pats.
