    They are talking about it on the Radio station Team 1200. Listen to the radio station they have talked about for the last half hour or so.

    Why would they announce it tomorrow?

    Do they not have until May 30th to announce the lineup? Why the rush?

    Yeah, I think Gretz should wait, especially to catch more of Patrick Marleau, Keith Primeau, & Robyn Regehr whom are all definitely up in the air at this point. Yet, I'm dying to here the announcement.

    I think they will be announcing that Bertuzzi has been added to the Roster and it will give Team Canada and company some time to find out if he will be reinstated. I don't know this for sure but I am guessing. This would give them time to find out if he can play and if he cannot, name a replacement. I can't think of another reason they are naming the roster this early.
