Too much of a logjam at forward already.

Emmerton, to me, has no future. He's a plug.
Agree on Emmerton, he simply hasn't stood out since junior. The only reason I think of why they are keeping him around is to center the 4th line. I do like Mursak and I'd like to see him on a line with Helm. Their speed would make that line very good at forechecking, maybe put Miller or Eaves on the other wing since they can play good defense. Then put Bert and Cleary on a line with Abby. They have size but limited scoring ability, might as well let them go out there and tee off on the opponents' defensemen. Who knows, with the softest competition available maybe they'd put up some offensive numbers (20-25ish points each). Bert can take his place as one of the top 3 in the shootout.
