Pelletier Called Up To Walking Wounded

Pascal Pelletier was called up yesterday by the Bruins to fill in a forward spot that is left absent by the ailing Boston Walking Wounded.

Leading the AHL with 24 goals, it's suprising that it took this long for Pelletier to make his NHL debut. I'm interested to see how this guy works out given the production he's had in Providence. Going up against a hapless Toronto squad might help ease his transition a bit. Expect the Bruins to win this one folks as they've won each meeting thus far this season and have outscored the Leafs 11-5 in that span.

I am anxious to see what happens with this kid too. I believe he was not drafted. On the good side, he trans with Bergy, he has put up some decent numbers in the AHL - but he was cut twice in training camp, and scouting reports do say he lacks size and skating ability. Would be nice if he surprises the team and the league, much like his buddy Bergy did. Let's see where he plays tonight - perhaps on the Savard line? They just better be awake because the Laffs are playign for themselves now. Each layer is showcasing themselves to other teams and the team is about to be dismantled - and quite frankly they have nothing to lose (even if they are 6 points back).

hmm.. Didn't I just ask why this guy was not already on the team in the last post? Do you think this board may be watched by the Bs??? Maybe we do have some influence on them!

Then, I woke up...

I would love to see this kid really hand it to the Leafs and maybe get 2 tonight.

The only other guy the B's would consider bringing up is Hoggan, but he'd have to clear waivers and someone would snatch him since he has good +/-. If he does start to light it up - it's good news all around because it should light a fire under Sturm's and Kobasew's bottoms. I just hope he's not too anxious to score and gets burned for a few goals.

He played with Krejci and Sobotka for a while in the A, maybe Julien will try that as a third line for a bit tonight.

my prediction is that he'll be in juliens doghouse shortly even with the lack of forwards. krejci and him will both be back in providence because of juliens stubbornness to play them.

We suck ass in shoot-outs !! The B's didn't look like a team that just had 4 days off, they looked like they had just played 4 straight. I know we have injuries but come on !! We need to send Chara first to blast one to get the tender frazzled !! I love Savard but he sucks in shootouts...brutal move !!

I agree.. Savard should not have been there.. It should have been Kessel, Sturm and Kobasew.

I would have thrown Lashoff to freak Toskala out. After three posts in the third... Anyways this is going to be a make or break weekend. Two losses and say bye bye playoffs (yes mathematically they are still in) but mentally, if we can't rise to the occasion when we have huge games/series coming up, then it will show this team is not ready to push for the playoffs. 3/4 points would be ok, but I would not settle for a split.

Boston needs to go on a tear soon. It seems they can only one 4 straight at time. they need to win the next 4 because they have nashville ottawa and detroit after that. the bruins should go 9-3 in the month of february. Most of the teams are below them or a couple poitns ahead soo next month would be a good time to catch some ground.

Are teams looking for a fighter? Thornton has looked awful and maybe we can package him and schaeffer for soemthing or just thornton for a pick.

We have Reich and Lucic so I agree... see if they can trade Thornton for a bag of pucks and keep some of the young "scoring" talent on the toster (Pelletier??).

Well....Well a win in the shoot-out ! Better selection of shooters for sure. I would always send Chara first to blast it !! The Bruins deserved that win today Lundquist stood on his head !! Now we need the sweep tomorrow !!

Your post says "Pelletier Called Up To Walking Wounded". Pascal Pelletier will probably be retired by the time you update this sight again.

3-1 win over the NYR and a 4-3 SO win over the blueshirts on back to back games? We like that

Kessel's family gave him a tshirt for Christmas with the words 'Where next' and below it the logo of all the NHL teams except the Bruins. Spoiled and unhappy, look for management to use him as bait.

Yeah, lets get rid of a player who wont be unrestricted for 7 years, a season in a half in.

Chiarelli is not as stupid as those who want him gone. Thats why he is a GM. Just because he made a semi bad trade with Boyes, does not mean he is going to trade all their youth up front. Kessel has speed, and in this NHL. Thats priceless.
