He also said that if players aren't playing well, he will be forced to bench them and give someone else a look. So there is a good chance that a fair amount of players get a look this season.

Aside from the guys in camp, Stone, Zibanejad, Grant, DD, Prince, Gryba and possibly Jessiman will all get looks at some point. MacLean said that they could have had 35 guys in camp but they decided to go with a smaller camp, so I'm assuming those are the seven players that they also were considering.
No hockey player will ever play 5-6 games per week.

Why catapult Wiercioch into the top4?
Ice time per game should be and will be :

Karlsson
Gonchar
Methot
Phillips
Lundin
Wiercioch
Borowiecki

It's just that Cowen is not there and Lundin will be missing a few weeks. I like the defense but yeah, Cowen missing creates a big hole between Gonchar and Methot
