Yandle probably will go either way, but if Carle maybe struggles in the first half of next year he could find himself on the outside of the bubble.
Carle isn't a lock IMO. For most guys it could be determined by how well their season is going, and maybe something like refusing the WC when healthy could come into play if it's close. Especially if they want to have one or two defensive guys like Orpik like the US seems to do.
After Suter and Yandle there's JJ, Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Carlson, Orpik, Martin, EJ, McDonagh, Goligoski, Gleason, and Scuderi who would all be in the running with Carle for the remaining 5-6 spots.
