Does he take it like a man and play harder, or get pissed and slack off?

I like what we have in place here. And who knows, Hagelin or Thomas could surprise in training camp and find themselves a spot. But if not, Wolski still has a lot to play for.
Fair points, though FWIW Kostitsyn is also in his contract year. UFA after the season.

That's a big part of my logic here as well.
