I think he will have a shot at earning a roster spot in training camp. If he doesn't make it, I think he will be the first call-up, at least to start the season. I know people are trying to do the roster math but once Meszaros/Vermette are signed I expect at least one change to follow. Incidentally, I'm not convinced Cody Bass is guaranteed a roster spot--with both Ruutu/Neil on the roster, it's not a slamdunk.
ThirtyFive, if you'll notice, Nikulin keeps talking about making the team--indicating he doesn't believe it's a guarantee that he will.
