Due to our team's current state of "rebuilding" we are pulling for youngsters to get valuable playing minutes on the team. Winchester's injury clears up the depth a little bit for a little while.
The problem with that logic is that the young players you have mentioned will not be playing on the roster if all that is available is a 4th line or extra forward spot. Since Winchester is a 4th liner at best, his absence doesn't impact their chances at all.

Not sure why this isn't readily apparent. Da Costa and Zibanejad are competing with Regin, not Konopka or Winchester.
