First cuts

The first wave of roster cuts will likely be made today. Sent packing were ..

Randy Cameron
Zack Torquato
Josh Aspenlind
Victor Bartley
Yves Bastien
Scott Brannon
Chad Greenan
David Jarram
John Kurtz
Patrik Magnusson
Pierre-Oliver Pelletier
Dominic Vicari

Cameron and Torquato were drafted by the Red Wings this summer and will head back to their junior teams. The Red Wings retain their rights. The other players are free agents.
Most of the junior-eligible players were sent to their teams except for Cory Emmerton, Logan Pyett, Jan Mursak and Scott Jackson.
Pyett was told that he would be kept for a few more days and then returned to his junior team in time for its season-opener. Mursak will likely get to play in a preseason game before being sent back to junior. Jackson can go back to juniors an an over-age player. Emmerton, the Red Wings' top draft pick in 2006, has had a strong camp and will likely get a preseason game look.

Have the wings and Pelletier completely cut ties, or is there still a chance he could be with the organization if Koopmans can't stay healthy?
