My money is currently on Zuccarello.

On defense, it looks like Erixon, Valentenko and possibly Kundratek will be the candidates for the "6th" defenseman spot behind Eminger and the lot.

We don't have any centers in a position to push for a spot, not that we need any with Richards-Anisimov-Stepan-Boyle running down the middle.

If Erixon fails to make it, it will be a major disappointment. The Rangers are hoping he'll be as good as McDonagh and Sauer were last year.

Vally will probably be a #7 if he performs half way decently.

Zuccarello will be given a chance unless he has a terrible camp. Hagelin and especially Weise will work hard to prove they belong in the NHL when the injuries hit.

Kundratek won't make it, but he'll likely get a mid-season call up when our RDs will get injured.
