Does this clear the mud?

Benning isn't ruling the prospect of a deserving kid grabbing a roster spot.

"If one of them comes in and is like Brock Boeser was last year and we think it's best for him to be playing in the league, then we'll make room," he added. "We're going to have six to eight guys down in the American League that we think are going to be part of our future. We have to make sure they develop properly, are physically strong enough and mentally tough enough, and when they are ready, we are going to give them an opportunity."
I think Pettersson will be with the team all year, but another spot on the roster for kids to yo-yo up and down would be ideal. Let the media and the kids know ahead of time they will have only five games, then whichever kid is playing best in Utica gets called up for only five games. There should be no surprises or disappointment when the player is sent down after the five games. Try to rotate Gaudette, Dahlen, Lind, Palmu, Gadjovich, etc, whoever is playing well. If the Canucks are competitive they can make a decision to keep someone up permanently based on their play. If they are out of the playoffs keep the rotation going all season, so everyone gets a taste, and open up more spots near the trade deadline by trading away veterans.
We are all Jim Benning.

Yeah, it's really looking like Petterson is the only rookie that "may" stick unless he clearly cannot handle the rigors of the NHL. Maybe Demko? But this management is stubborn and seemingly set with exciting the shit our of this market with your Gagners, Schallers, Beagles, Roussel, Mottes, Bouchards, Leipsics, Del Zotto's, Biega's, Hutton's, Sutters, Gaunces, Eriksson's, Granlunds, Baertshi's and so forth

Baertschi, Horvat, Boeser
Eriksson, Sutter, Petterson
Gagner, Beagle, Virtanen
Granlund, Gaunce, Roussel

Schaller
Leipsic
Motte
Bouchard

Oh WOW Dude: You have Bouchard ahead of Gaudette. Did you know that?

Personally, I think Gaudette will end up starting here.
We'll see.

I don’t see Demko staying in the NHL right now. I mean of course he could blow people away at camp but I think the plan is is to start the Swedish duo. But if either guy falters I could see Demko get the call. It would be great for him and his development to get some games this year. With DiPietro going back to junior they’ll try to squeeze more from Demko.

Let’s not forget that one of our Swedish goalies is coming off a superb and successful WC. We know they both won’t be back next year so there isn’t a rush to keep Demko right now. But I reiterate, it would benefit him greatly to get some NHL games, in the least, this year.

I don't underestimate Gaudette,but anyone who thinks Pettersson is going to not only make the NHL, but play Center right out of the gate when he played wing almost all of last season,makes me doubt their opinion.
