If any of these guys stink it up or get hurt then Powe is an option (right after Kalinski) depending on who is out.
The problem with Powe is he has absolutely no business in the top 9 because he has Riley Cote hands and he doesn't fit on the 4th line because Carcillo Betts Laperriere are just better.
If JVR hadnt impressed in camp, Powe would 100% be on this team. He played well with Giroux-Upshall and with Giroux-Briere when given the chance. Carcillo may have more skill, but he never uses it. Powe as our 13th forward is a luxery this year, because of the incoming of JVR, Betts amd Pyorala.
