Weber is the 24th player if Blunden makes the team.

Gomez-Gionta-Pacioretty
Plekanec-Cole-Cammalleri
Eller-Palushaj-Kostitsyn
Desharnais-Darche-Moen
...White & Blunden spares

Gorges-Markov
Subban-Gill
Campoli-Spacek
Yemelin

Against most teams, our fourth line should get some points, as they are more talented than most 4th lines and still have size on the wings.
If we have a size matchup issue at C on the 4th line, switch DD and Eller for some games.

Campoli and Yemelin can rotate at times, and if necessary, Gill and Spacek can get nights off when we play 2 in 2. The aim should be for Yemelin to get 60 games as a rookie.
I don't understand your point about Palushaj, he should be in Hamilton because there is no room in the top 9. Blunden can play a 4th line role, Palushaj not so much.
