The org brass has also been noted gushing about Rinaldo... I think it was during the '11 season ticket holders meeting - they were talking about top prospects ready to make an NHL impact and they left some popular names (at the time) off and went straight to him.

While some may not like it, it'd be easier to just accept reality and start putting him on your mock opening night lineups that will be broken up and juggled in 3 games max.
I'm hoping that Laughton comes in and really impresses, and makes the team as the 4th line C, and forces rinaldo out

I actually forgot about Wellwood, so my ideal 4th line under those circumstances would be

Talbot-Laughton-Wellwood
