I don't know what the hell is going on with Boedker. He seems terrible in the AHL. Is he unhappy? They are clearly banking on OEL making the roster, with one of Tiki/Turris/Boedker as well. I know everyone is wait and see with Turris, but I think this is his year as he has matured enough physically. MacLean will make a strong case to be on the team as well.

How many spots are realistically up for grabs?

Wolski - ??? - Doan
??? - ??? - Upshall
Prucha - Hanzal - Vrbata
Pyatt - Fiddler - Winnik

Extras: Nokelainen, Biz, Korpikoski

Winnik is an RFA, so if they don't qualify him that's another spot up for grabs. They might opt for that and put Nokelainen on the roster full time, which is fine with me. We still have Korpikoski and Prucha, too, so lots of bottom 6 guys and not a whole lot of spots. No one worth promoting, either.

So we lost 2 top 6 players (assuming no one else is retained) when we were already short probably a legit top 6 guy. The writing is on the wall for some signings or a big splash.
