Without turning this into a "Make Your Lines" thread... consider that at most, we will keep 14 forwards up with the team.
Since Chipchura would have to be waived, I assume all 5 will start the year with the team. If Chips has a really bad camp, he may be dealt for a bag of pucks. Otherwise, he or Metropolit ends up shifted to the wing.
Top 2 lines wingers:
These are the only three locks to be on our top 2 lines IMO, bringing our total to 8 forwards thus far.
2nd / 3rd line wingers:
One of these guys ends up bumped to the fourth line or in the press box, but all have track records showing they could earn a regular spot at some point.
4th line wingers:
And this makes 14 forwards.
There is no spot left for Kostopolous unless we send a kid down to Hamilton or make a trade. And I'm not convinced he would bring more to the team than developing one of these players would.
