You can’t keep the budding superstar off the team this time around, ad although he might be the 13th forward, he will definitely get the opportunity to make his mark, and if Stamkos cannot get back in time, he could fit on the top line.

Logan Couture, SJS

January 2, 2014; San Jose, CA, USA; San Jose Sharks center

The versatile Sharks forward has slumped lately but he is smart enough and skilled enough to fit in any role.
