Yo, what did CPZ's wife say on twitter??
she basically blasted the Pens for their decision making, saying that her husband deserved to be recalled over players like Street and Petersen. She never mentioned either of them by name, but it was during the same time that they were recalled and CPZ was left in Wheeling. What's funny about the whole thing is that he eventually did get recalled by WBS, but several hours later he was "loaned" to Cincy for two players.
More info on it:
OK, here’s the details on the Casey Pierro-Zabotel transaction from today.
He was loaned to Cincinnati of the ECHL, but Wilkes-Barre/Scranton retains his AHL rights and Pittsburgh retains his NHL rights. In return, the Wheeling Nailers get two forwards, Sam D’Agostino and Chris Minella. They’re both rookies in their first year out of college (D’Agostino from UMass-Lowell and Minella from Notre Dame) and they both have cracked the 10-goal mark so far this season.
“He’s a young kid in his second year playing in the Coast and it’s a change of scenery,” Pittsburgh assistant general manager Jason Botterill said. “He’s going in the right direction, but to be in the same place for two years, it’s a situation where they get a couple of players back who can make the team better and give them more of a physical, grind-it-out style and that’s what the scouts and the coaches in Wheeling wanted to do.”
Also, many of you know there was some Internet buzz about Pierro-Zabotel last week due to some Twitter comments attributed to his wife. I can’t imagine it was a coincidence that he was loaned out a few days later, but hey, that’s just me talking.
and TPB's post, which is a little more detailed and contains some of her tweets, which even included some tweets directed at Petersenhttp://www.thepensblog.com/wilkes/wbs/w ... s-you.htmlhttp://lh5.ggpht.com/_4o6frZEnR-s/TUs79 ... 477266.jpg
Pic of the tweets that are referenced. Won't [img] the pic because of her language.
CPZ has since been traded out of "this (charcoal) organization" and spent the last season with Bakersfield, where he finished 11th on the team in goals scored despite leading the team in games played. I hope that he at least thanked Evander Kane for making him look like a potential NHL player while playing in Vancouver.
