If Ryder keeps playing the way he has in the first 2 games of the season, he will be recieving plenty of ice time regardless of how many players are healthy. Ward still has to earn his ice time imo, and Langdon/Begin will be inserted when needed.
Having the extra healthy bodies around will be a bonus, because the coaching staff will be able to bench whomever they want. Ward, Kilger, Sundstrom, Audette, etc. will need to play up to a certain level or they will be replaced in the lineup. I don't think Julien will hesitate sitting any player at any time.
