I'll go with Hainsey or Perezhogin.

Hainsey is definitely pushing for a spot - if he doesn't break out with Montreal, then maybe it'll be with another team if he's traded during the off-season.

Perezhogin seems to really be adjusting well to the game, meanwhile. He's been almost a point per game in the past thirty games with Hamilton, if I understand correctly. He had a hat trick a week or so ago, too. One of the top rookie scorers in the AHL I believe. If he can contribute well during the Calder Cup playoffs, he may garner enough attention to warrant a call-up, pending a good preseason showing.

Higgins could also make the team next year, but I have a feeling he will take a while to start contributing offensively. If his early season games this year were anything to go by, at least he's good enough defensively to stick with the big team.
