By process of elimination you have to assume Austin Smith is headed for coming back to AHL.

With 14 forwards on the current roster, he has been the primary call up from the ECHL.

The problem is if only 2 forwards make the jump, that likely means Smith still isn't in the full time rotation. Eakin is the only forward I truly feel confident saying he's a NHL lock, but I believe another Top 9 option comes with him. I still hope that Sceviour though is in the mix for the 12th-14th spot as well.

If only two guys jump to the NHL, I think that's good news for Vause and Hedden for full time duty. Austin Smith still probably only gets spot duty because it seems obvious after this latest call up he still hasn't earned Willie's trust.
