Hopefully he keeps learning and battling, you always hear about the hardwork that guys like Lauridsen, Alt, and Gustafson have been putting out this off season but you never hear much about Manning.

Would be great for the organization if he can push for a roster spot the next couple seasons.
Manning has one more year to prove he's an NHL calibre player. I'm not sure he'll ever crack the Flyer roster. Realistically, assuming Mesz is not re-upped, there is still no room for him in the lineup, even if Kimmo doesn't come back. Lauridsen has already passed him on the depth chart, Alt will probably do so this year.

If Manning doesn't progress this year, they will probably just let him go by not qualifying him next year.
