There were already spots for Morin/Hayes/Smith to battle for. The 13th forward spot is for Bollig.

Stalberg and Frolik's spots are what Morin, Hayes and Smith will be battling for. Seeing as Smith has a one-way contract, and will need to clear waives to be sent down, it's safe to assume he'll be on the team. That means, Morin and Hayes will battle for Stalberg's spot on the third line.. and at this point, I'd be pretty shocked if Morin didn't grab that spot.

Whoever loses (likely Hayes, IMO), will be far better served playing a large role (on the ice, and as a leader) in Rockford than sitting in the pressbox for 80-90% of the games. There will always be call-ups during the year.
