HH was right when he said it'd be really hard for a newcomer to crack this lineup. It looks as if Therrien has his mind pretty much made up.
I think that Ryan Stone, based on how he looked today, could push someone for a spot. But I'm not sure who. Jeff Taffe was relatively invisible today, so maybe him?
Kennedy played too well today for me to be worried about him.
The way I see it, it's Taffe, Stone, Beech, and Pesonen going after two roster spots, one to round out the top twelve and the other as an extra forward. Taffe's the incumbent and I tend to think he'll at least make it as a reserve. My money's on Stone since he's waiver eligible now and they might not want to risk losing him if they think he has a future as a checker. Of course, he has to earn it.
But we'll see... these types of things sometimes have a way of working themselves out with injuries.
