Dustin Jeffrey recalled ??

Postby Va Beach Pens Fan on Thu Dec 25, 2008 11:40 pm

Very, very unofficial, but there's a thread on HFB tonight that Dustin Jeffrey got the call for tomorrow night's game in Jersey....

Nothing on the official site as of now.

Here's the thread - http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=587528

LW for Crosby's line, perhaps?
They've tried everyone else outside of Matt Cooke (which I still would like to see).

...Jeffrey can't be any worse than what (Stone, Minard, Pesonen, etc.) has come up to play this year. The train wreck of a top 10 prospect list has to concern the organization. They might as well give Luca Caputi his shot next.

Very interesting.

I've got a buddy who has played against him when he was with the Soo and he says Jeffrey is a great faceoff guy.

Ziggy's gotta be out. Maybe TK is returning.

jeff taffe - looks like taffey and mispronounced by most

ryan stone - sounds like a wimpy abercrombie model, no...worse...an american eagle model
dustin jeffrey - was this guy the host of "Wild 'N Crazy Kidz"?
janne pesonen - like pesonen, but janne reminds me of janne laukanen. who sucked.
tim wallace - should be running for city council

the pens need to throw talent out the window and get some real names in there.

you need a slick french canadian name, something czech sounding, and then some crazy tough guy name, could be french canadian or end in -ski.

shero needs to jump off the anglican train and get this baby moving in the right direction. everyone knows guys with anglican names cant play hockey.


How about Luca Caputi?

FYI, there's nothing in the NHL Media Notes about any transaction for him.... Maybe because of the Xmas break, so we'll see....

Jeffrey is a shot hound. He'll fire the puck from anywhere on the ice. With his finishing ability and good attitude, might be a good chance we see him sometime this year.

A quote from the "story":

I'm very interested to see how Dustin Jeffries performs tonight. This will be his first NHL game. Jeffrey will center Bissonnette and Eric Godard.


Damn! That's some hard-hitting journalism. I wonder how Gregg Jeffries feels about all of this. Does anyone actually pay for that clown's "insider access"?

The mis-spellings and errors on that site are so ridiculous, that you almost wonder if he does it on purpose just as a joke. I mean he has the correct spelling of Jeffrey's name on the line right above.

And then Jeffery will get sent back down for not scoring. I wonder why, with those dynamite wingmen? I say put Staal's big ass on the wing and tell him to stand in front of the net. Give Jeffery a shot on the third line and see what he can do.

Jeffrey is never going to be called on to score. His ceiling is most likely as a 3rd line center that works hard and grinds out some goals.

So he'll end up being like Talbot used to be?

As long as he doesn't develop a superstar complex all should be well.

Always look forward to the young guys making their NHL debuts.

Though I would have kept Wallace up, the recall of Biz Nasty makes sense after the way the team has played lately. Aside from Cooke (and the dearly departed Wallace) there has been a complete lack of toughness, physicality, and the willingness to play mean.
