Im excited. I really hope they give him a real shot to see what he can do. Please put him with Malkin/Crosby.

It's not linked anywhere - but I'm watching the WB/S game. It's been reported multiple times.

With Sydor, Bissonnette, and Dupuis scratched and Minard called up we're at 24 with Pesonen, so sometihing is up. Not sure you can have an emergency call up with 2 healthy scratches.


Peso has more raw offensive Talent than any of those guys. Sid is the Pens' main offensive guy. With him out, they're even more lacking in that department. Thus, Peso gets the call over those other guys.

the reason i said Talbot was because of the "non-disclosure" injury he had before he might have played because DP got hit with the puck and the Pens were on the West Coast to far away from WBS

With Pesonen's promotion, someone either has been demoted or placed on waivers. This is not a precursor to a trade, as the trade must have been made prior to the promotion, as it puts the Penguins at 24 roster players, or one over the maximum.

My guess is one of Crosby or Dupuis has been placed on IR -- or Minard was demoted.

I'm guessing, Kennedy and Bissonnette got sent down. Minard should get a shot to stick, and Kennedy needs to re-gain his scoring touch, so a little boost of the AHL isn't a bad thing. Doubt that he actually was though, and unless Sid is really hurt bad or Dupuis has a broken bone, doubt they were placed of IR. So tomorrow should be interesting.

That's the problem. Kennedy isn't a scorer and shouldn't be relied upon to be one. He's an energy guy with speed and determination. His job is to sustain a forecheck that, hopefully, will lead to a goal. As a result, he may score a few, but "regaining his scoring touch" suggests his primary purpose on this team is to score. It's not.

Tk's 2 goals in Sweden was not normal - IMO he is a 4th liner on a good team with upside, he if he is with Sid the other teams D is happy

Do you agree that getting 10-15 min a game, he is relied on to score 10-15 goals a year. He gets power play time on the 2nd unit every game, I'd say he's relied on to score more than he is. Thats part of this teams problem, nobody has defined roles, one game your on the 4th line, next game the 1st.

I'm refreshing ESPN's transaction page, but I'm assuming it wouldn't be official until the NHL's business hours commence, whenever that is. Or I could be way off.

Kennedy has a one way contract.

No chance in hell he got sent down.

Let's say Dupuis goes on the IR to not have to send anyone down.

Tank-Malkin-Sykora
Pesonen-Talbot-Satan
Minard-Zigomanis-Kennedy
Cooke-Staal-Godard

If Dupuis is ready to go he replaces Minard and Minard gets sent down.
