I don't think any of those mean all that much when we are talking about our 12th forward. Kenopka can start contributing two seconds after he puts his skates on the ice with a big hit, fight or face-off win. Plus he is a better PKer. Winchester's talents are subject to diminishing returns the less time he gets, and the less talented his line-mates are. Kenopka doesn't have that problem. Winchester is better served taking the spot of an injured player.
