Dealing with injuries to Kris Letang and Tomas Vokoun the Penguins have a lot of questions and options in how they'll decide to form their 23 man roster coming out of training camp.

Up until about a week ago the roster situation for the Pittsburgh Penguins looked pretty static as things were settling in as many expected. But two key injuries in the past week just go to show that in the NHL roster builds are always very fluid.

Pens #1 defenseman Norris candidate Kris Letang went down with an unknown but believed to be lower body injury late last week in practice. He'll be re-evaluated in Pittsburgh once the team gets back from their bonding/team building excursion at West Point and a lot is hanging in the air.

The team made forward cuts today waiving veterans Chris Conner and Andrew Ebbett on the final day of preseason waivers leaving 14 contracted forwards- plus tryout Chuck Kobasew still with the team who has believed to be offered a contract over the weekend. Matt D'Agostini has been injured and not practicing recently so his status on possibly going on the IR (and not counting against the 23 man limit) could be in question.

In goal the #3 guy in the organization Jeff Zatkoff is believed to get a shot and being the NHL backup due to the injury with Vokoun. Vokoun has been cleared for light workouts starting next week from his blood clot condition but his future return is yet unknown.
