As if we didn't already know...


According to a trustworthy source of mine, it seems that the dream of seeing Janne light the lamps in a Penguins uniform will not be coming to fruition... According to a Finnish newspaper:

It looks like Janne Pesonen will not be signing with the Pens for next season. Getting a contract looks like unreal at the moment even though his good numbers while in WBS. "I don't believe that that there would be place for me anymore for next season because of the full roster", says Janne. Pesonen who is an unrescricted agent at the moment and is free sign with any team at the moment. His goal is to get a one-way contract with an NHL team for next season."There are many NHL-teams at the moment who are interested in me, but let's wait and see who is really serious and who is not. European teams are also an alternative for me", he continues.

Though not a surprise to most of us, it is still sad to see somebody with so much potential leave the organization without really getting a chance. If this was a year ago, I could see Janne getting a chance over signing somebody like Miro Satan, but with the solid team we have right now there really just isn't anywhere for him to go. We here at PATP and the rest of the Pesonation hope that Janne is able to sign with a team who will appreciate his abbilities and give him a fair shot at being a successful winger in the NHL....

To our readers, though our namesake may be leaving the organization, both Kevin and I had such a good time sharing our opinions and hearing yours that we are not planning on letting this be the death of our blog and we will continue to cover the Penguins next season... For our Finnish readers, we are all here still hoping to see janne have success here in North America, and you can count on us to keep you in the loop if he decides to stay in the united states (unless he signs with the Capitals or the Flyers, then he is dead to us)...

Also keep an eye out for a poll on which obscure player we should become obsessed about next season...

Kevin's take:
Can't believe it is over so soon, though as one door closes, another opens. I'm going to be returning to the Outer Banks, NC this weekend where Vince and I spent alot of time hashing out this site. Maybe it will be the old addage, back to the drawing board. Who will step in? I just want to say to all of Finnish readers and esp. Janne, Thanks and Good luck.
