David Vyborny seemed destined to play second fiddle.
The Blue Jackets' leading scorer from 2005-06 was looking at second line duty behind the trio of Rick Nash, Nikolai Zherdev and Sergei Fedorov. Ditto for the power play.
But that changed when Zherdev's contract dispute moved Vyborny up to the big line during five-on-five situations. Fedorov's shoulder injury then ensured he would get plenty of time on the first power-play unit.
