I forgot about Franson. I have been assuming Laakso was going to make the team and then maybe Blum if we carried seven. But said maybe Blum makes it as the other rook besides Sulzer, instead of Laakso, to not get too far ahead. There's still time for more competition.

But anyway, I'm betting we carry seven and this won't take a rookie spot. Totally conceivable that Sulzer is the only rook, and we carry six. But I doubt it. Makes more sense to have enough ready to go and healthy scratch. Bouillon will probably get that a number of times so Sulzer and Laakso don't get put on scratch too often.
