I really believe it will be 'cause Kosty should be send to Hamilton being the first call-up. Lats will make it, Perez is in, Murray definately has an edge over Ferland and Downey so last spot belongs to one of the last 2.

I also believe Ferland has a much better hockey sense as well. I remember a goal last year in front of the net when not only was he in front of the net, ready to pay the price, but positioned himself perfectly to receive a pass, something I don't think we will witness Downey doing. That Bonk-Bégin-Ferland could be a nice, energetic but will have some scoring chances as well.
