3rd line wings

Who are the favourites from camp for the 3rd line left wing and right wing position for Atlanta. I can see Piros winning the left wing position given he has had a good camp so far and he has been playing that position lately. Right wing I'm not so sure about. Vigier is the leading contender but only by default given that he is only battling a first time pro in Baby after Tapper - who I and many other fans earmarked him for the position - got cut earlier in camp. Swanson a center can play right wing also is other option but it seems that we are more likely to look for a more sutiable option elsewhere via waiverdraft or trade. What does everyone else think.

My forward lines going into the new season are:

Kozlov - Savard - Heatley
Kovalchuk - Stefan - McEachern
Piros - Robitaille - Vigier
Cowan/Lindsay - Santala/Swanson - Lessard
