Timonen, Schenn, Coburn, Meszaros, and Grossmann are all under contract and projected to be in the line-up. That leaves one spot. Gustafsson is no longer waiver exempt, so it is his to lose, and I think they'd be reluctant to risk him being claimed.

It seems like someone would either have to still be hurt (Grossmann is still suffering from concussion symptoms, so that is possible) or traded to open up a slot for whomever the Flyers pick.
Well if what we saw on the injury front from that position this year is any portent of the future, I'd wager a goodly sum of money on the possibility that at least 2 players from that list end up being diagnosed with the Ebola virus by the end of training camp. Which will then be described as flu-like symptoms for half the season.
