John Scott – 40 GP – 1 G – 0 A – 1 P – -13 – 133 PIM

Tye McGinn – 60 GP – 10 G – 14 A – 24 P – +8 – 65 PIM

Where they will fit: As I said earlier, I expect Scott to rotate in on the fourth line. He will be in the lineup when it may get a little more physical (ahem the Kings), maybe for Burish. Desjardins, Brown, and Scott are a pretty tough bunch. Burish is still a pretty tough customer, but Scott and Brown like to stir the pot a bit more than Burish, if you know what I mean. As for McGinn, I think he would fit in well on the third line rotating with Kennedy. He could eeven take over for Kennedy in the lineup in those physical games. Where Kennedy brings some skill and finesse, McGinn can, and will bring that hard-nosed play to the third line.

Scott will be on the roster. McGinn could definitely be beat out by one of the players on the next slide. as I have said over, and over, and over, it all depends on how they all perform in training camp.
