Not only are Porter's numbers outstanding, and vastly superior to Okposo (almost triple, in the same number of games), but he brings a huge leadership quality to the table.

Plus, Porter is actually ON his team still. That sort of matters.
Ha ha, well at the time of my question Okposo was still on the Gophers, in all fairness.

As for Porter being in the NHL next year... I think he will probably have to start in the AHL and prove himself there, too, which I don't think will be too terribly difficult given his insane work ethic.

Anyone catch Porter at the Wings/Kings game watching Jack Johnson... oh to have JJ back on the blueline... Michigan would be even more ridiculous!!
