The Calgary Flames have reportedly made six roster moves today in preparation for trimming down their roster to 23 players by Tuesday afternoon.
Per a press release by the team, forward Garnet Hathaway and defenders Patrick Sieloff, Jakub Nakladal, Tyler Wotherspoon and Kenney Morrison have been sent to the AHL's Stockton Heat. (None of the five require waivers.) Also on his way out is forward Drew Shore, placed on waivers this morning (with the intention of going to the AHL should he clear).

October is a big month in the hockey world. Training camps end. NHL rosters are set. The regular season starts. And later in the month are two big events: Halloween, and the anniversary of the first tweet by Boring Sean Monahan.
I left my towel on the other side of the dressing room. Jiri found it and handed it back to me. That was nice of him.— Boring Sean Monahan (@boringmonahan) October 25, 2013
For the curious, October 25, 2013 was an off-day at home for the Flames. When the account began, the Flames were considered a bottom-rung NHL team and nobody was quite sure if Sean Monahan would stick in the NHL. Two years later, Monahan is a bonafide NHL star and the account has become a staple of most Flames fans' social media universes.
To commemorate the greatness that is @BoringMonahan, let us take a trip down memory lane.

The 2015-16 National Hockey League season begins on Wednesday.
Like, the Wednesday coming up after the weekend. On Monday, everyone and their dog will be thrown on waivers, and every team has to declare injuries and starting rosters to the league by 5pm ET on Tuesday.
So the Calgary Flames really have trim their roster down in a hurry. With that in mind, here's how we think things sit right now in terms of the Flames trying to cram their 34 current players into 23 spots by Tuesday afternoon.
