I'd be surprised if Pateryn sees more NHL action than he did last year (or a proportional ~6 games over a full season, maybe), and would be surprised if Nygren wasn't given almost all of next year to get comfortable in his N.Am. transition in Hamilton. Injuries change everything, of course, but I'm guessing Pateryn won't be quite good enough, and Nygren won't be quite ready.
