I don't think he is much of a lock, personally-- I fully expect him to be a regular healthy scratch/probably get sent down at most after a few games where he actually plays.
The guy is the perfect example of a guy without the tools to even be a competent 4th line NHLer who busts his *** off to do everything the coach wants him to do. AV might like him for the example that he sets, but I could not be more confident that he's not going to work out/last, even just in that plug role.
Besides, he'll get pushed out of the lineup when Kesler/Booth comes back anyways. (unless AV's completely mad)
It's more just the fans/that one guy who went "And who else would you have providing physicality on the 4th line!? Unbelievable!" that I'm taking exception to.
