I believe (though not 100% positive) that teams will be allowed to carry 14 forwards and 8 defencemen in Sochi. In terms of those two, Seguin mainly plays RW in Boston (with Bergeron and Marchand), but can play C. Richards plays C in L.A., but played LW on the Toews line in Vancouver. So I don't see any issue with moving Seguin or Richards over to the wing. If indeed the rosters are cut back to 13 forwards, I'd lean towards cutting Sharp. We need Richards' physicality, defensive play, PKing ability, and experience, and I think Seguin would be absolutely lethal on the international ice surface by next winter. Or if Getzlaf had a poor playoff, I wouldn't hesitate to cut him for that matter.
