I know, I don't really like Stemps on the 4th line either but if he gets outplayed by Sven then I think its the only option. Backlund I think looked good with Sven in the season opener, and since Stajan did well with the Czechs that could be a good option. This of course is the problem with having 10 top 9 forwards, but i don't think its a bad problem to have.

Yea.. I've liked Horaks play yesterday and before he got sent down but theres simply no room for him, its either we dump him on the 4th line or in the AHL, and I think its better for him if he goes to the AHL.
