I'm not sure about him getting the 5. If we have an abundance of anything up front it is centers.

With these guys pretty much assured a spot

Foligno - Dubinsky - Anisimov (New Blue)
Umberger - Brassard - Atkinson (Feed the Kid!)
Prospal - Letestu - Dorsett (Old Time Hockey!)
Gilles - MacKenzie - Boll (Crash and Bash)

there is only room for one more forward be it Johansen or Jenner. If you keep Jenner then Johansen has to go down for 5 games played which might take 10 actual games or so. Only other option is you cut Gilles and keep both the J boys. Or Calvert makes it and you send both of them back.

Unless he has a real chance of making it for the whole ride, I don't see a lot of upside to keeping him.

Should be an interesting camp. (Assuming the MOU is ever signed)
