Pesonen called up!

Talbot, sadly, is probably out for a while now I figure.

But the sliver lining..................

I expected MT to ride the Malin-Crosby hot hand and then call up Minard to center Tank and Satan. Wonder what they will do now? Pesonen makes send only if he's in the top 6, otherwise Tank, Satan, Dupuis and Sykora are the top 6 wings and then call Biz or even Caputi up for some 4th line duty.

I'd like to see Pesonen take Talbot's spot on Crosby's line. He's had a fairly decent stretch of time in the minors to get adjusted to the North American game. Pesonen performing well has good implications not just for this season but for next season when the cap crunch hits.

Pesonen would be a fine addition to Crosby's line.

I don't know how likely it is that we see Sid and Geno together again, but if they are in fact together, Pesonen is a good playmaker who would be a nice third component to that line.

I think Crosby and Malkin will stay separated to start games. But Therrien will fall back on putting them together if the Pens are down late in the game. Here is how I expect things to happen:

Dupuis-Crosby-Satan
Pesonen-Malkin-Sykora
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Feotenko-Zigomanis-Godard

I think Dupuis played a good game last night against the Isles while he was with 87 and 81. So I expect that to stay the same. I think Malkin's line should be our number one line.

It sucks that Pesonen's callup was at the expense of Talbot getting hurt. Hopefully he will be back real soon.

Thank the lord, we can use his cheap contract later on down the line and he'll actually be ready for the NHL then.

Yep, he's gonna be a healthy scratch, so he'll have time before the game tomorrow to take a quick trip up there.

Only if he plays on crosby's line.

If dummy MT plays pesonen refuses to play Pesonen on the first line, then he wont make the hall of fame.

But if he plays on the first line, he's a sure fire first ballot player.

Thanks for the enlightening observation that Pesonen is one of only 12th forwards tomorrow without Talbot. I actually thought he was going to be called up to be scratched so he could take a drive up to Toronto to see the Hall of Fame.

Actually then they need to start playing the Batman: The Animated Series theme song when he scores.

See I love stretching things as far as I can go. If it can be a stretch from something that is already a stretch, even better.

Thats just a huge "F-U" to Chris Minard and Jeff Taffe. I was expecting them to call up Pesonen. I do believe it is the right decision however. LETS GO PeZo

I think Taffe and Minard know where they stand with the team. Both have had shots with the big club and not done too much. Pesonen has yet to play much with the big club. I don't think it's an FU as much as it is the life of an AHL hockey player.
