1st Opportunity missed....

Due to the injury of Pascal Dupuis the Big Pens made a call up from WBS today.... Unfortionatally it was not our boy, instead they give the nod to another player the Pesonation has respect for, Chris Minard...

This could be due to the fact that the Pens barely got 10 shots on goal against the Sharks and aren't looking for another guy who can pass the puck, but who knows...

Minard has his own short comings which may open up a spot for Janne, there is speculation that he is slow (Although the penguins insider disputes this), and will he be able to get his shot off with the significantly faster defense...

Anyways stay tuned and go pens...

Yes, Minard does shoot the puck, he loves it so right now at this time the Pens will give this shooter a chance. As for his speed, the AHL had a skills comp. and Chris was one thousand of sec slower than the winner.

Lets give him a chance he deserves it.

Hey, I'm fine with Janne and Minard being on the same line in the NHL also.

I still think that after this baby Pens road trip is when Janne will get his chance.

Best of luck to Minard.

that sucks that Janne didn't get the call. Quite Frankly, we don't need Bison and Godard. They stink. And Goddard doesn't fight to protect, he just looks for a fight with the other team's fighter. He should wait a little before dropping the gloves and make sure he is fighting to protect. This shitty. Bring up Janne.
