Looking at my lineup, I do not see how Skinner would fit-in or replace anyone that would share the same role as him... I love the kid, he's a special talent and he was on my radar when he got drafted; but at the end of the day I don't see him beating out any of the guys listed below.
There is an outside chance that he does make a case for himself next season (if there is one...)
Tavares - Crosby - Stamkos
Giroux - Toews - Eberle
Perry - RNH - J. Neal
Richards - Spezza/E. Staal - Getzlaf
