For me, White is a lock. Henry should be in discussion.
It is not just about hitting; it is about size too, Pacioretty adds to our size and keeps the skating of Pyatt - I am not sure Martin will take him though after his recent comments. Bonneau and Schultz are barely AHL material at this stage and are unlikely to be of benefit this season although there is some hope for Schultz down the road.
