Lightning training camp rosters set

The Lightning announced yesterday the makeup of it's roster for training camp.  Camp gets underway on Friday at the St. Pete Times Forum before public events on Saturday and Sunday at the Ice Sports Forum in Brandon.

Between September 17th and the close of camp the Bolts will have to whittle down the roster of 54 players to 23 or under.  Key battles loom not between one or two single players but entire groupings of talent -- while we wonder who will be the #6-#8 defensemen (as is the stated plan by the team), the real question mark on everyone's mind (and it has been for a good portion of the off-season) is the makeup of the lower lines.  This is where GM Steve Yzerman created the most competition.  

Indeed, depth of players who will make up the bottom two pairs is at it's deepest in recent memory.  Sean Bergenheim, Dominic Moore, Nate Thompson, Chris Durno, Teddy Purcell, Paul Szczechura, Blair Jones, Dana Tyrell, Marc-Antoine Pouliot, Johan Harju, Eric Perrin, Niklas Persson, James Wright, Adam Hall...  These are just some of players who will be trying to cement roles on the bottom two lines.  

While it's perceived that Nate Thompson and Dominic Moore are locks for the bottom-6 center roles, anything can happen in camp that changes this.

Below the jump you'll find the complete roster for the Lightning's camp.  I aplogize before hand for formatting issues, as you will see the forwards are not as neatly aligned as the defense/goaltenders are.
