You are under the assumption that McCormick will get benched alot and I don't see it the same way. I don't see Cummins and Worrell playing 82 games. If McCormick performs he will remain in the lineup. I don't see him as a top six forward, but I see him getting quality minutes if he remains with the team and performs.
I can see the Avs starting the season with both McCormick and Svatos, but I don't think it will be a permanent situation. Things have a way of changing very quickly.
