Sure, while the NHL is locked out he may have to battle to stay in the lineup every game but he still should make the team and battle it out for the 4th line spots with some of the other guys. Once the NHL starts and frees up another spot or two he should have no problem staying in the lineup full time.

The way I see it there are only 9 forwards who were close to locks coming in - Kadri, Colborne, Aucoin, Ziggy, D'Amigo, Hamilton, Ashton, Scott, Deschamps - with both McKegg and Ross very likely to make the team. And IMO guys like Ashton, Scott, and Deschamps better be looking over their shoulders because McKegg and Ross (and even a guy like Abbott) are going to be gunning hard for their top-9 forward spots.
If Ross isn't playing as we'll as some of the other prospects, that would be sufficient reason for him to be sent down. I have no information on that but Siegel seems to think it might be the case.
