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.
Konopka may be a better 4th liner, but like you said Winchester is a better injury replacement. Check out my lines and the only spot Konopka fits is on the fourth line with Neil and Smith. Winchester would be the better extra forward. And I disagree that he is a better PKer.

But without Hoffman and Daugavins, there is 15 forwards (Providing Zib and Da Costa stay). Someone has to go, as 14 forwards would be the max to carry.
