The answer to that poll question specific to Fleischmann and the first line RW is dependent on the answers to the questions: 1) How long will Kozlov last as the first line center? and 2) How the second line plays to start the season? It is not just dependent on Fleischmann's performance.
There is also the longer-term question about what happens with Fehr, but that is not an issue at the moment with Fehr sidelined.
As Strung noted in the other thread, Fleischmann has plenty of motivation starting on the first line with the two-way, one year contract and the fact he will be RFA with arb rights next summer.
40+ games in a Caps jersey in the top 6, more assists than goals. Will those 40+ games be as the first line RW, doubt it, given the current 2 line combos.
