Kings Cuts Part IV

More cuts. Technically I'm a bit behind on this "breaking news" but, since it's not terribly surprising I won't sweat it too much. Anyway, the following players have be reassigned:

Andrew Campbell (Defense) - Manchester, AHL
Marc-Andre Cliche (Center) - Manchester, AHL
Kyle Clifford (Left Wing) - Barrie, OHL

Anyone with half a brain could figure out who that leaves left to fight out the last few spots on the team:
Richard Clune
Peter Harrold
Raitis Ivanans
Trevor Lewis
Brad Richardson
Brayden Schenn
Kevin Westgarth

It's probably a stretch to say that Harrold is legitimately fighting for a spot, since his versatility as a player who can play forward or defense makes him a good bet to make the team, even if it's just as an auxiliary player. I'm still skeptical that Schenn makes the team this year, but hopefully he'll get a couple games at the NHL level to get used to the speed and energy necessary before he heads back to lead his Junior team. Anyone have predictions on who will be the starters on the fourth line on Opening Night?
