I'd imagine Nodl for sure. My guess is that Asham is the other? Only other candidates are really Powe or MAYBE Carcillo? But we need Powe for the PK.

Thanks, as much as it's a no-brainer to put Carter and Laperriere back in the line up. It must have been a tough decision for the Flyers coaching staff on who to pull out of the line up. IMO each of the players DUHockey9 listed has played pretty well so far.
EDIT: It's getting harder and harder not to pencil Nodl into Asham's spot next year.
No way can Nodl can play on the 3rd line. Not sure what happened to him since he left St. Cloud, but his offensive game is completely non-existant, and you can't have someone like that playing playing with arguably our two most creative forwards.
If Nodl makes the team (I'm not in favor of him being more than a 13th forward) he's a 4th liner along side Betts and Lappy.
I like Asham, but as I watch him, it seems like he is doing a lot of floating and committing turnovers. For the line he is playing on, he can't be doing it.
As for Powe, everyone knows Powe isn't playing the game to score goals. He has never been a goal scorer. He's there's to stop the other team from scoring. It is why he's out with a minute left in the game. You need that kind of player.
