K I'm trying here.
Does Ryan White have a shot at cracking the lineup?
Maybe at least as an extra forward or is he going to be sent to the AHL, or perhaps one more year of junior?
I'd guess his chances of making the lineup in the fall are slim to none. If he comes into camp in great shape and really improves his skating, I still think they would send him to Hamilton. I thought Kostitsyn looked good but he still went to Hamilton for part of the season, he was lighting it up with the dogs, so he got called up and never looked back. I would be surprised if White had the same success as Kostitsyn did.
On the other hand I would also be very surprised if he was sent back to juniors as an overager, if he can't get good ice time in Hamilton I would think he would be in the ECHL before he would be back in the WHL. My guess is that he will see time on the 3rd line for the Dogs, although it's still early and we don't know what players will be back for the Dogs just yet. I also wonder if they will consider moving him to wing since he's so good along the boards, perhaps have him take the face-offs though as it appears to be one of his strengths, as the center position could be crowded if Locke is back.
