I can entirely see myself following the rest of the gaggle in Stone, Goncho, Summers and (crosses fingers) a healthy Ahnelov. And I love that Gonch and Stone are righties. That'll be a lot more entertaining than seeing if Schelmko, Heshka or Lepisto make the team.
Lepisto is all but a shoo-in for a roster spot unless he really takes a step back at camp. He was a new man after the Olympics and one of our most reliable defenders in the Detroit series. Good speed, puck handling, and despite his size, does not get outmanned physically. Never quits on the play. I was one of his biggest detractors over the first couple months, but he blossomed into a really solid player.
