If they're returned, I can't see the Dogs passing on keeping the Agozzino/Friesen/Pacan line together. I would say if Pacan or Friesen don't come back, Grondvalt is first on that list followed by Schwindt.

The rookies are going to have it in tough. I think Bateman is a lock, although... I don't rule him out as trade bait at the deadline, if the Dogs are considering a Memorial Cup run, and there is a big piece (Gudbranson?) available.

I also heard DiFrusia does not want to play until 2012/2013 season, which is why he fell to the Dogs. One of the few teams who had the patience to wait for him.
