I think the real question is where are we going to play him in the lineup.

Is he going to be taking Max's spot on the first line or are we going to move Dupuis up? He better be somewhere on the top two lines or else Minard would've been the better call-up.

What if we re-sign Colby Armstrong in the offseason?

There can't be two number 20s >_<

Oh no.

Saw on the PG that Max said that he expects to play tonight. Don't know if Pes still sneaks into the lineup if that's the case or not.

(Also, Curry is getting tonight's start)

Here's the link:

The Pens' site says Pesonen is expected to play tonight, though it doesn't specify with whom.

Anyone that watched attended the morning skate would be able to make an educated guess on that by watching who was together for various drills. We'll know for sure soon enough.

He's being treated like a 12th forward as he should.

If the team is in good shape and winning, he gets more shifts. If they are up by one or losing by one (or tied), he won't get much time.

It's frustrating for people who want to see him, but he's doing what most coaches would do with a guy that is last on the depth chart for the night. If the team would play well, you could actually watch him play.

I'd say yes if Talbot is feeling ok, not because Pesonen was bad, but because he isn't needed.

As much as I'd love to see this guy really become productive for us, honest to god he looks like a ping pong ball the way he gets bounced around out there. He's getting man handled in the corners and along the boards...

MT, in the right situation, should stick him with one of the top two lines and give him at least a game to get a bit of a rythym going...

With the penguins falling apart this month, I don't think now is the best time to experiment with an unproven player. They have to get this turned around.
