However, according to NHL.com, the minimum roster is 20 players, composed of 18 skaters and two goaltenders.
Any chance we go with maybe 21 or 22 players to save against the cap? That seems risky, but as it stands right now we can only afford 1 more contract. Looks like someone is going to have to be moved before the start of the season.
Not counting last year where it was a weird cap year, Pens usually run with 21 but more often with 22.
They don't need to cap it at 23 and they won't.
