I don't think he's a shoo-in either. They've cut high profile players before.

Something that works in his favour is the fact that the current crop of forwards isn't particularly strong (leaving aside the issue of the lockout continuing and Huberdeau, etc. being available).

Depending on how everyone is playing when the roster decisions are made, Shinkaruk and Monahan might have the edge because they were already at the summer tournament.
