Anyways, players on the 25 who would likely play in WBS would be

Forwards
Bennett
Tangradi
Uher
Kuhnhackl
Veilleux

Defensemen
Morrow
Despres
Dumoulin

Bortuzzo
Strait
though not listed, I think Alex Grant has a decent chance at becoming a 6th defenseman with some offensive upside

Goalies
Zatkoff who will split time Thiessen, a prospect of similar quality, both more than likely topping out at back-up at the NHL level
I don't want the NHL to lockout but if it does, I would definitely love to watch those four in some AHL games (because if there is no lockout, I won't be watching the AHL). I figured Despres and Bennett for sure. Probably Dumoulin because it's been 2 years since he's been drafted, right? But Morrow is probably the Penguins most intriguing prospect. I never watched anything but highlights of him but everything I've read and seen, makes me think there's a lot to look forward to. I'm still surprised of the chemistry of Morrow and Pouliot. Aren't they both primarily offensive defensemen?
