Leipsic played great in the Canada-Russia challenge this summer, so he could be another western contender. I'd have him on the team as an agitator before St Croix as a scorer.
I like Lowry, and he does bring good leadership qualities and lots of size, but as someone pointed out he is quite slow for his calibre of player and that will ultimately cost him a spot on the team due to the larger ice surface.
I think Leipsic will be one of the final cuts, along with Hudon, Leivo, Siemens, Shinkaruk, Corrado, Ceci, Puempel and Percy.
