What you missed…
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
The Penguins announced this afternoon that defensemen Taylor Chorney, Brian Dumoulin and Derrick Pouliot plus forward Scott Wilson have all be re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre / Scranton.
Chorney needed waivers but cleared. Pouliot, who hasn’t appeared in any Pittsburgh games since April 7, is healthy and serviceable.
Remember this April 12 game against Portland when the Penguins dressed five men on the blue line?
Danny Syvret – Clark Seymour
Nick D’Agostino – Alex Boak
Those were the days.
Mix in Chorney, Dumoulin, Pouliot with Scott Harrington, Barry Goers and Reid McNeill and you have a rock solid defense. Veteran insurance / experience in Danny Syvret and Ryan Parent waiting in the wings. The options are limitless.
It’s an embarrassment of riches, really.
As long as everyone stays healthy and the Penguins stay on course, I like my damn chances.
I updated the postseason chart big board through Game 2. Have a look.
