Stamkos, Tavares, Giroux, and Staal likely all make the team and play wing, probably two of them on each side is my guess.
I think Hall could easily outplay the LWers, but could be tough for Eberle to do the same.
I just hope they don't have a team full of old slugs who get skate circles around all tournament. I'm already having flashbacks to 2006...
They will put an emphasis on skating & conditioning this time around. That's why I don't see Eberle being close to the final roster while Hall...depending on how his first 6 weeks go next fall...might get some consideration.
The focus for right now is just limited to who gets invited to the summer camp.
I think both Eberle & Hall might make THAT list.
But...in the end...they will be selecting centres to take several of the winger spots.
Only guys like Tavares & Giroux are locks as natural wingers, IMO/
