If he doesn't pick it up, and Meszaros proves healthy and capable, I think Gustafsson is sitting in the press box to start the year.

Timonen - Schenn
Streit - Coburn
Grossmann - Meszaros
x: Gustafsson, Gill/Gervais
What is capable? I think Mesz is a mediocre player, the guy has barely played hockey in almost 2 years, he's going to be average to below average for the better part of the year.

Is a slow footed Mesz who's scared of the puck better than a 24 year old Gus who will take chances, but can skate/pass/shoot?
