Do you think Evgeny Grachev deserves to go into camp knowing its his roster spot to lose?

Gotta hedge your bets in this situation.
If you re-sign both Prospal and Fedotenko, and don't buyout Wolski or Avery, then you have 5 LWs that are basically locks for starting the season in the NHL on top of Grachev/Hagelin, etc.

Too much of a logjam for my liking, which is why I'd advocate the return of Prospal or Fedotenko, but not both.

EDIT: Of course, if Prospal would come back for ~$1m, I wouldn't be opposed to using him as the extra forward until late in the regular season to keep him fresh. In that case, move Christensen/Weise to the AHL.
