Analysis: McCollum is the biggest name from this list. The 2008 first-round pick now begins his pro career in the AHL, where he will battle Daniel Larsson -- another top goalie prospect -- for playing time once Larsson returns from Sweden, where Detroit will begin the 2009-10 season. McCollum is a great long-term Fantasy keeper, but it could be very unlikely we see him up in the NHL this season. The remaining Detroit cuts are just organizational depth and have little to no Fantasy appeal.

News: Kris Newbury (head) continues to work his way back to health with the Toronto organization after a crushing hit in a game on Feb. 10. He has recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Maple Leafs, however.
