My target (to return) is sometime in the next week, week and a half,” Bennett said. “It’s a day-by-day thing. If I have no setbacks I’ll take a new step every day
Until (Bennett sees the doctor) there isn’t a return (date) to play,” head coach Dan Bylsma said. “That’s on the horizon for Beau, next weekend. We’ll go from there once he’s been evaluated by the doctor at that point in time
Won't be long now. How do you think the forward lineup gets augmented once Bennett returns?
Kunitz - Crosby - Stempniak
Pyatt - Malkin - Neal
Jokinen - Sutter - Vitale
Glass - Goc - Adams
Who sits? I might have said Pyatt, but I liked what he did with Geno vs Anaheim, and he deserves a couple more games there to see if her can keep it up. The logical place for Bennett, at least until he finds his form, is on the 3rd line, probably 3RW. If so, does Vitale sit? Goc wont, so maybe, just maybe... one of Glass or Adams? We have enough penalty killers now (Sutter, Goc, Stempniak, Glass, Vitale, Adams, Kunitz) that you could conceivable sit Adams.
