I thought I heard that Sid expected to play tonight. He said he was day-to-day, but was going to go. Is there somewhere reporting different?

And where does it say TK getting top line duty?

Just askin'.

The Penguins.com preview of the game posted last night does not have Pesonen in the lineup.

We have seen no credible source say that he has been called up, unless you count JB who is not even in Pittsburgh.

I don't know that he is even being called up.

Nothing on WBS' site, NHL.com, sportsnet.ca, TSN.ca or the Pens site. This doesn't seem to be true. The preview you mentioned lists the lines expected, and he isn't on one.

It was reported that Pesonen he did not play with the baby Pens last night. He may have been called while the babies were on their Western trip to be available if Sid cannot play but not be officially on the roster. That way he can be plugged in instantly if needed. He probably will not play if Sid comes back.

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.

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.[/quote]
I sure do believe that, and with his two goals in 11 games, he's on pace....15 goals. He's not a sniper. He's not a goal scorer. He never was. He never will be. Part of the lack of defined roles has to do a bit with the team not playing well and giving those who are playing hard an opportunity. Kennedy gives his all each shift, so he was rewarded with a top-line promotion with Dupuis injured.

Look, I'm sick of hearing the line-juggling crap. Last season, Therrien juggled lines for months before settling in on the ones he liked. Once he found them, he stuck with them. And not a single player had a negative thing to say about it. In fact, several players said it was good because you learned everyone's tendencies, ot just two or three players' tendencies. Five months ago we were calling Therrien a coach of the year candidate. Now he doesn't know what he's doing?

JB would know. He's called up.


I'm not doubting you, but it's just weird that it's not in print elsewhere.

I don't know that JB has ever been wrong. He's also had some great scoops including Edzo being fired.

It just hasn't been made official yet.

Scott Stuccio reported that he was given the call 3 hours before last night's WB/S game started

The Pens went with 7 defensemen, due to the loss of the Golden Helmet.

I would be interested in this, but chances are he'll play 10mins in the bottom six.

Here's to him taking Pascal's spot on the first line.

But, Therrien is an idiot, and probably won't do that.

Actually, with how Minard took a scoring spot instead of a 4th line spot I am encouraged. So now the lines should be:

Peso-Sid-Satan
Tank-Malkin-Sykora
Minard-Talbot-Kennedy
Cooke-Zigo-Godard

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.

Kennedy has a one way contract.

No chance in hell he got sent down.

Kennedy has a 2 way deal, next year it's 1 way. Dupuis was placed on IR

Well, if Dupuis is on the IR, Pez could be on the first line with 87 and Fedotenko tonight, according to the projected lines on the Pens site.

Fedotenko is a healthy scratch for tonight, along with Eaton.

Yea, I just saw that. This has to mean Pesonen is playing, without a doubt.
