If the NHL season were to start tomorrow (and presuming his injury is not serious) my guess is it's Irwin up first, followed by Acolatse and Tennyson. Doherty is likely going to miss significant time with an achilles injury so he's probably not available. Irwin's max is probably a 5-6, while both Acolatse and Tennyson could sneak into 3-4 roles when it's all said and done.

Despite his vastly improved play earlier this season I'm still not buying Doherty just yet.
