Minard and Curry sent down: http://penguins.nhl.com/team/app/?se...ticleid=397622
It doesn't sound like Talbot's injury is too serious, but we all thought the same when it came to Fleury. I thought Minard looked pretty solid during his stint up here. Hustles, plays physical and works for the puck. Obviously he is not going to be lighting up the league anytime soon, but he's solid depth.
What is there to say about Curry? He looked very solid during his first three NHL appearances. While he's not the biggest goaltender in the league (5'11), he makes up for it with hard work and determination. He also handles the puck pretty well and has quick legs. I've said it before, but I think Sabourin is gone after this season and Curry will be our backup next season. I feel Sabourin will be looking for a pay boost and more playing time in a different city (Conklin/Thibault).
It also appears that the organization is choosing to go with Wallace and James over calling up Filewich or Pesonen. It's looking like Filewich is a career AHL'er. He's been given chance after chance and he never comes through. Maybe possible packaged trade bait in the future? Pesonen's name has recently been thrown around in some recent trade rumors. For the right trade, I can't say I would shed a tear if that occured.
Good to see Fleury back. Hopefully he doesn't chip a nail or we could lose him for the rest of the season. We might end up seeing Curry sooner rather than later.
