Brayden Schenn, the big return from Los Angeles in this summer’s Mike Richards trade, is lockering along a wall to the left.  Sean Couturier, drafted eighth overall in this year’s NHL Draft with the pick coming from Columbus for Jeff Carter, is in the back of the room.

But this year, it seems like there’s going to be some more openings.”
