Cherepanov is the closest to 'might' because there is no guarantee that he will be in NA. However, he probably will be.
Closest to might? That seems like 'might' in a nutshell right there.

Sanguinetti and Anisimov will content for a spot this year, it is a foregone conclusion that they will be regulars by 2009-2010.

The only way they won't be is if they're traded. And unless it is for someone like Gaborik or Kovalchuck, that is unlikely.
Oh please. Sanguinetti isn't going to win a spot this year as a 6/7 d-man when he could be racking up top-4 minutes in Hartford.

Anisimov is the closest to making the lineup, but even he will have a hard time considering our depth at center and need for another top-six winger.

There is a good chance Anisimov will be worked into the lineup next year, but Sanguinetti is hardly a lock to get a spot. I can appreciate your faith in our prospects, but you're high if you think they're guaranteed to make the jump to the NHL next year.
