I'll be shocked if Wingels isn't a regular in the top 9 next season & Winchester won't really ever be much more than a good 4th liner.
Well, you raise an interesting point, and this kind of goes to Vaasa's tenet about PROSPECTS and keeping them.

Where DOES Wingels fit next year? He's not going to displace anyone in the top-6; not even close. The only reason he's gotten a sniff this year is because of injuries He's a capable third-liner, but not as effective as Winnik, Moore, or Galiardi. One could argue that given his skillset, he's even less preferable than Desjardins or Handzus on the bottom lines. Talent wise, at least in my eyes, he is inferior to Sheppard; that is another road block in his way.
