We dont need Winchester.
You do understand the role of a 13th forward right? If Zibanejad makes the team, Konopka works. Da Costa, Petersson and JOB should not be the 13th man at this stage in there career.

Winchester's a good 13th man because were not ruining him by sitting on the bench, he can step in and not hurt us, he is good for practice drills and such.

He's already doubled Konopka's career offensive output, and is also a great PK'er and face guy. The only thing Konopka has is fighting.

I don't see what more you want from a guy who's role is to be the healthy scratch.
