Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Now that we have our matchup set for this weekend, the interesting question comes... who replaces Caparusso on the top line with Hagelin? I'm thinking it's probably slide Rust up to center Hagelin and Brown, but anyone else think an alternate would be to have Scooter slide up to LW and have Hagelin play Centre? Lines would like this:
Sitting Forwards: Caparusso (inj)
Thoughts? Is there another defenseman that could move up and play a 4th line position so Deblois sits again?
