I look at someone like Zuccarello--who is a truly gifted player-older and stockier than Thomas--and the problems he had last year. Tortorella is very much about players being able to make plays on both sides of the puck and all areas of the ice. Thomas might hang around in training camp for a while and even play a few exhibitions but I don't think he's going to make the team. I also think one of Zuccarello or Wolski are going to be gone--Wolski potentially traded and MZA potentially sent down--and that's for cap reasons. I think both Mitchell and Weise--cheaper options might be in the mix as 4th line or spare forwards.
