MacIntrye Up; Tangradi Down

Steve MacIntyre returned to Pittsburgh from his conditioning stint. As a result, Eric Tangradi was returned to Wilkes-Barre.
Bombulie had his insights on the Tangradi demotion. I am slowly coming around to the fact that Tangradi’s ship may have sailed in the eyes of the Pittsburgh Penguins. I hope I am wrong with this assessment, but 17:00 of ice time? In two games? That doesn’t sound like to me the staff in Pittsburgh has that much faith in one of it’s top prospects.
I am not bashing Tangradi, so don’t get that confused. I am simply stating what is glaringly obvious to me, is all.
Jonathan is right though, I am thrilled to have him back with WBS. As for MacIntyre, I openly questioned him being here when he was initially sent down but, you know what? I was warming up to the guy. I don’t think we see him again here in WBS.
I am heading to Portland, Maine on Thursday morning. The weather looks great. I’ll probably have a blog post from Vacationland tomorrow afternoon.
Let’s Go Pens!
