Tom Sestito - No Friday Night Fight? (part 2)

So effective this morning Tom Sestito was sent back to the minors this morning.  It is not at all shocking since he was an apparent healthy scratch against the Blue Jackets game on Friday March 11th.  If you recalled he made some public statements about taking around at Brandon Dubinsky.  This set the stage for this re-assignment.

As it stands right now, his stats this season on the Penguins looks like this.  2 games, 2 penalty minutes and  9 minutes of ice time?

Here is my take on it.  He is a Velociraptor.  Its like he is some throw back to different era.  With the state of affairs in the league right now, there isn't room for this type of dinosaur.  Its like the two games he played coach  Rick Tocchet was his handler?  They bring him up form the minors as a novelty.  Its like look here, we have an old school enforcer. 

Tom Sestito is almost a nuclear deterrent.  See the metaphor there?  Yeah he may fight.  He may win.  But at what cost?  Crazy penalty minutes the team doesn't need? League sanctioning?  Non of that helps the Penguins get to the post season.
