I too think Kloucek is a lock, however I'm not convienced Zidlicky is. Also I think it will come down to Zidlicky, Hamhuis and Schnabel. I think two of these three will have a job. Allison might make it if, York and/or McKenzie are out as he can also play forward, but he's gone as soon as we get healthy. I think if you base it off of this preseason, from what I've heard Hamhuis should make it even over Zidlicky, but I listening to Poile, Trotz and Johnson I believe it will be Zidlicky and Schnabel, again, I think Hamhuis is better than both, but I think his youth will keep him in the AHL atleast to start the season.

Forwards, I think Tootoo, Erat, McKenzie and one gritty forward (aka healthy scratch) will make it. Upshall starts the season with the Ads.

Also, from every count I've heard Tootoo has not been given anything but has earned his way onto this team. I've talked to countless hockey friends of mine who all love Tootoo and these are guys that know hockey, not hype.
