Sekera *might* get some PP time, but he's likely too far down the pecking list. I'd expect Myers, Ehrhoff, Leopold, and a forward to man the points on the PP.

He, Ehrhoff, and Pysyk are the only 3 guys that might, IMO, have the skating and IQ to keep up with Myers.
Thanks for the replies. What if there is a full season lockout (which I think there will be), do you think Sekera would have a bit more of an offensive role? And is Pysyk slated to make the lineup next year and be relied upon to make a decent enough impact?
