That's bad logic, but I get what you're saying. Combination of points and hard work. I have no idea who that'd be, so I'm not going to say anything.


To be honest, I love Pez.

But if you don't bring up Minard, that's a big, gigantic F-U to Minard. That's saying, "we see no NHL promise in you. Please continue to be amazing in the AHL." I'm sure Minard could crack a roster somewhere. Therefore, he deserves the call-up.

Once again, I'd love to see Pez playing with Crosby, but at this point, he hasn't earned it.

I agree. Not only would it diminish Minard's confidence, but it would sent a ripple effect down the entire baby Pens: It doesn't matter if you're playing the best, we're going to call up someone who's more popular with us. That would sit well with the players. So if Minard truly is playing the best down there, then he deserves the call up.

If Taffe gets the call up, then he might not clear waivers on the way back down....

I'd think it would be Minard; agree with previous about him producing the most. Wouldn't mind seeing Peso, for the experiment angle, but Minard's earned it more.

Why is "panic" not listed as one of the options?

More like this, amirite?

Seriously, I think a guy that's been playing at Zigo's level should not see some AHL'er leapfrog over him.

No reason why Taffe or Pesonen should get called up before Minard.

Pesonen was a -4 last game. Just sayin'.

Well maybe they don't see any promise in him.

It's not about doing X and Y to earn your call-up. If they like his ability and think he has the chance to do something, then they call him up. Or even if they just want to see how he does, that's reason enough.

Minard will be nothing at the NHL level. Why waste our time with him up here?
