Horak has to stay up with the big club. He's been arguably the team's 2nd-best centre behind Jokinen. His all-around game and creativity are things this team desperately needs.

Stajan doesn't deserve to play. He doesn't offer much to the club right now other than faceoffs. While Horak hasn't been great in the faceoff circle, he kills penalties and is a huge upgrade offensively.

Morrison is also back and he's good in the dot. He can be the team's "specialist" if need be.

When Backlund returns, the lines IMO should be:

Tanguay - Backlund - Iginla
Glencross - Jokinen - Moss
Bourque - Horak - Stempniak
Kostopoulos - Morrison - Jackman

That's three good scoring lines and a solid grinding line.
