Could Kolarik get a shot?

Postby Penspal on Tue Jan 29, 2013 8:59 am

Pens have some new blood in their system with Kolarik. Based on the issues the big club is facing, and the decent AHL Season Mr. K is having, is it not worth a game or two look at the NHL level? Multiple AHL years at 20 goals does not make him a superstar, but ET is getting a look with similar numbers.....

I think he's nice AHL depth, but I doubt he'd make an impact at the NHL level unless the Pens lineup is decimated.

I wonder if the Ottawa press has ever worked in "decimate" for a Senators headline.

I agree DP, likely just AHL depth, but the guy he was traded for (Ben F.) played for the NY Rangers in their last game. Its a new season, and AHL "stars" are in game shape and may see a few games early on.

I'm missing something here. So much in fact that I actually googled Ottawa and Decimate, Canadian search results only..... didn't find anything, so what's the background on Ottawa and the word decimate?

Benn Ferriero played because the Rangers bottom 6 is... just atrocious. He got PT because they were terrible. Not because he's good or anything.

It's more an indictment on New York's bottom 6 than it is on Ray Shero trading away an "NHL ready guy".

They would've signed Jason Arnott to play in the bottom 6 had he passed the physical. That may have been a decent signing if it were 2006.

Asham, Rupp... c'mon, they are Penguins cast offs, they can't be that bad :P

But you touched on a good point, bottom six.... Kolarik is a goal scorer, top 6 potential.

Notice how Asham and Rupp are the only two you know ;)

But in seriousness, they were sitting Stu Bickel and Brian Boyle (two vets) to get Ferriero in there
