Given the team's RW depth:

Only one of Zuccarello/Thomas will position themselves in that question mark slot. If Thomas outplays Zuccarello, there isn't really any room for the latter on this roster, unless you think he can hack it at LW with Anisimov/Callahan.
I've seen very little of Thomas, but I am not extremely impressed by what I've seen, and I absolutely wouldn't be surprised if he didn't even come close to contend for a spot in camp...

And I wanna see more of Zucc. Time flies by, but I remember Marc Savard being recklessly tradeded away from NY only to become a top 5 scorer elsewhere and would easily have been our best player during many of those years. We should definitely give Zucc another year or two at least.
