Marian Gaborik is signed for two more seasons after this and so is Ryan Callahan. I think there is a good chance both players get brought back and give these guys a chance to develop properly, though I wouldn’t rule out JT Miller making the team in a bottom six role, a la Ryan Kesler, and then working his way up the lineup. Not to mention that Miller is listed as a center by Plymouth, but has played wing before.
Thomas is so interesting to me and he hasn’t had the best season so far. His talent was evident in Traverse City but he didn’t have enough size and strength. More than anything I hope he is working on that.
