They are all playing well, and in the event of injury I'm sure that Pesonen would be the first to go, as he wouldn't be exposed to waivers. I think Caputi is likely a year away from a call up, as he's had a somewhat sluggish start compared to his playoff play last year. Stone is playing well, and is wearing the A here.

I believe the Taffe and Minard are playing well enough to warrant being called up as well, but with the depth at forward already in the burgh I don't see it happening unless there's a rash of injuries.

Plus, with the exception of a few, there's the waiver exposure to worry about even attempting to call them up. I think most of them will be here in WBS for the year barring massive injuries to the big Pens.

I'm not sure any of those guys are subject to recall waivers. That has to do with minor league salary. Usually guys on two-way deals will have an AHL salary low enough that they can be called up without waivers because teams might be wary to call them up in a non-emergency situation if they think they might lose them.

Minard's most deserving on stats but also has the least upside. They'd probably go Pesonen or Stone depending on who went down to open up a spot... but there are 14 forwards on the NHL roster right now so they have a lot in front of them at the moment.
