Not Surprising

After Therrien publicly ripped him and Endicott yesterday. As for why Endumbcott is still there, I have't the slightest idea.

MCM - Endicott is here because Craig Patrick doesn't have a clue how to construct a winning team. Erik Christensen and Max Talbot should be playing key roles on this team.

No team will ever win with Recchi, Malone and Endicott at center.

I can only assume they are subtly manipulating the results... sending Fluery down would be too obvious... but Talbot and Christensen? Unlikely to make much noise.

What other reason could there possibly be to subject us to Endicott than they are aiming for Kessel/Johnson.

Talbot will be back after the break... hopefully Christensen too. Although, Wilkes Barre is short on forwards too so hard to say what they'll do. Carcillo is out for the season.

I honestly could care less about the WBS team's win-loss record. It is about developing players to be better for the NHL in a team environment.

If the Penguins feel like Erik Christensen, Max Talbot and Noah Welch are better options in the NHL, then they need to take that risk and send down stiffs like Endicott.

Let WBS find stiffs like Endicott and others in the ECHL to fill their lineup.

This is true... but they've done it in the past and I wouldn't be surprised to see them do it again... the whole getting them into a long playoff run excuse. I'm sure they'll try to put as much of the team back together that started down there at the beginning of the year.
