Yes they are, one of them could even find themselves in the 2nd, but while I consider both locks for the team, I don't consider them locks for top-9.

How I currently see it is that there are seven players who will be in the first three lines no matter what: Koivu, Ruutu, Filppula, J.Jokinen, Granlund, a KHL centre (either Kontiola, Lehterä or Immonen) and one of Korpikoski or Bergenheim. That's seven. Now, there are guys like Hagman and Leino who can make it. And I guess it's not out of the line either that Erkka convinces OJ to a comeback. And if we're to look for a dedicated, but fringe scorer to try and take the slot left open by Selänne, even someone like Pulkkinen, Armia or Sakari Salminen can end up sneaking in. That would well leave Korpedo or Bergy vying for a 4th line role.

...but maybe this is a discussion we should be having in the thread dedicated for our Sochi roster talk.
