While the Blackhawks haven’t announced it officially, their opening night roster appears to be set.  The last remaining piece was the battle for the all important 8th d-man spot between Mike Kostka and Ryan Stanton.  Stanton was claimed off waivers by Vancouver today, so I think it’s safe to say that Kostka won the job....
