Two decisions are made and now there's one to go for the Winnipeg Jets to get to the NHL-mandated 23-man maximum roster to start the season.

Defenceman Adam Pardy and centre Patrice Cormier were placed on waivers Sunday and if they clear they're likely on the way to the AHL's St. John's IceCaps.

Both were at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre on Sunday but did not practise with the Jets.

By this afternoon's 2 p.m. CT deadline all NHL teams must comply with the maximum roster and the league's $64.3-million salary cap.
If defenceman Dustin Byfuglien isn't ready to go for Tuesday's opener in Edmonton it could complicate things.

Byfuglien went sliding into the boards legs-first late in Friday's exhibition loss to Boston. The team said he was OK but after trying to skate for about 10 minutes on Sunday Byfuglien had had enough.
"He's day-to-day" coach Claude Noel said after the 90-minute workout. "Precautionary measures. We're being intelligent on that part. We expect him to be a player yes."

Noel meant for Tuesday but more will be known when the Jets practise here again this morning before departing for Edmonton.
On a more certain note Sunday both nicked-up defencemen Grant Clitsome and Zach Bogosian were on the ice and able to practise. Noel said he believes both will be a go for Tuesday.
Sunday's skate before 100 or so curious locals was intense but upbeat.

"I thought practice was good today" the coach said. "At the high altitude (about 4600 feet) you can see it's fairly tough on the players. I thought it was a crisp practice and we did some conditioning and a fair amount of battle.
