Then there should be two spots open to play wings on Stepan line assuming Wolski stays and he's given another chance on the 1st line with BR or another center and Gaborik. Pack line stays intact to open the season. Not too shabby to compete in the East.
regardless of what line combos you use

Avery-Richards/EC-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan
Wolski-Stepan-Zuccarello
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust

where is there any room for a rookie? let alone two? If one of Avery or EC is the 13th forward, and one is in the AHL, there is room for only 1 rookie forward. If we can't sign Richards, one is the AHL, one is the 13th forward, ok, I can see your math but those are a lot of assumptions. Avery could surprise a lot of people this fall. He is looking at a contract year and with his reputation, he has to show every GM in the league that he is worth signing.
