Well, I never mentioned Korpikoski, Bourret or Byers. Perhaps Byers may get a look if someone on the 4th line goes down but I don't think he's quite ready yet. I seriously doubt either Korpikoski or Bourret make the team. They both need at least another season in the AHL. Korpikoski probably needs another two seasons.
Is Hossa even resigned yet?
My points on the post was finding out info on whether or not Avery has been or will be resigned. And if so and because of the Cullen trade it definitely frees up a vacancy for someone like Dawes to make a serious impression to earn a spot. I might be in the minority here but I don't think Avery should be on the first 2 lines. IMO...Avery is ideal as a 3rd line center/wing. Being that he has had success centering in the past I think the circumstances would be worked out so that a possible line of Dawes-Avery-Callahan is something that may actually happen out camp. Unless that idea is really far fetched. If it is, be gentle kiddies.
BTW, do you really think Callahan will be the future C of the Rangers? Say it isn't so Jorts.
