Pysyk certainly would have a chance, but he might be starting in the A and then the first call-up.

Also depends on what happens with the contracts to Leopold and Regehr. If they become free agents, then whether they are kept or not will make a difference. One would expect Brayden McNabb to be up full time though, so:

Myers
Ehrhoff
Sekera
Weber (RFA)
McNabb

Sulzer is UFA as well, and Brennan is RFA. Certainly, Pysyk will have a decent shot, with free agency acquisitions pending.

The thing is with Myers/Ehrhoff and then Brennan/Pysyk, Sekera's role is likely to be more defensive, but he does have offensive potential. We'll see if he can improve on that.
