Welcome to the start of the 2010-2011 season! Today, Flamesnation presents a roundtable discussion featuring our own Robert Cleave and Puck Daddy's Ryan Lambert. I asked the questions and the boys answered them. Feel free to append your own thoughts in the comments...

With today being the last day to submit waiver lists, a lot of notable names hit the wire this morning with some of them getting scooped up.
On the Flames front, Matt Pelech and Cam Cunning cleared waivers while Brett Sutter was placed on the wire, no doubt with a view to sending him down. That cuts the hopefuls down to Brodie and Meyers in town, meaning they will both likely be on the roster come Thursday.

According to various reports this morning, the Flames have made some additional cuts, the most interesting of which is Matt Pelech.

(In this final part of the series, Robert Vollman takes a look at the Flames offensive defensemen)
Jay Bouwmeester, 27
When Calgary made a 25-year-old Bouwmeester one of the highest paid defensemen in the league last year, the Flames were hoping for a potential Norris contender, while Bouwmeester was hoping to see the first post-season action of his career. They were both sorely disappointed. After 167 points over 4 full post-lockout seasons in Florida, Bouwmeester managed just 29 points – will he bounce back this year, or did the Flames accidentally find their own Wade Redden?

We recently discussed the TJ Brodie issue, but there's no question that Matt Pelech is probably an even more pressing situation due to his age and waiver eligibility. Whats more, his performance in training camp has further muddied the waters.
