Pens 4 - Devils 1...Janne reassigned...

The Penguins finally play a full 60 min, and it showed, they really looked excellent tonight... I really thought Janne showed huge strides from when he played in the NHL during the pre-season... Sadly, Janne was re-assigned to WBS following the game... True Janne did not have any points or goals, but honestly, he seemed to provide the same exact thing that Dupuis and Fedetanko bring to every game. We will see how this plays out in the future, and I am almost sure this is not the last time we will see Janne in Pittsburgh...

Kevin's Edit:
I get the feeling they don't really know what to do with Janne, I have to believe they need to give him some serious ice, not the 13 mins total out of the 120 mins played while he was up. The reason he was recalled was that Mad Max's injury was going to hold him out of the Buffalo game. When the Max dressed you knew Jannes playing was going to sparse. Tonight looked more like a goodwill jester for the inconvenience of hitchhiking so soon since there were back to back game.

Janne did look alittle more comfortable this time up. Maybe the next time up he will be able to have a few practices under his belt

I like Pesonen as much as the next person, and was very excited when the Pens signed him.... but the thing is, who are the Pens going to sit if they call Peso up for the long term?? It would be totally unreasonable to try to send Dupuis or Fedo to Wilkes-Barre with their one-way contracts. Sure, they're not top line kind of guys, but it would be stupid for some team not to pick them up if they were on waivers...

Agreed -- the Pens do not know what to do with him.
