I don't expect that to happen, but I can hope.
That may not really be so far-fetched. The fact that they called up MacLean and not Ebbett means that Korpi probably will be playing center. It would make sense to put him with Upshall, as their speed would complement each other, but you could put him with Boedker for the same reason. Turris has, I believe, centered Pyatt and Stempniak on one or two occasions, so there's that possibility. Boedker-Korpi-MacLean may not be a bad idea either.

In terms of the overall balance of the forward lines, though, I suspect we'll see what's in the GDT: Korpi in Fiddler's place with the SA line back together, if for no other reason than it causes the least possible disturbance to the lineup.
