Well there is only one forward still out injured, Robitaille, who plays center. (Cowan and Aubin are back already). Hartley doesn't like to carry more than one extra forward, so when Robitaille comes back, someone will likely go, either Blatny or Simon. Tough call, I think Blatny will stay over him.

Blatny does better when he's expected to perform in a checking function and then gets a few opportunities, rather than being expected to score. They should leave him on the third or fourth line because of it. Maybe play a little PP too.
