Mario Lemieux expects to play in tomorrow night's game at home against the Sabres. The team also recalled Michel Ouellet from the minors. To make room (since Lemieux was on the injured list), the team sent Lasse Pirjeta and Maxime Talbot to Wilkes-Barre.
I'm actually shocked that Talbot was sent down. I'm not sure what it is they want him to work on down there - I thought he was filling his role here quite well. I can only guess that Therrien isn't as enthused about his performance. Could be the strict adherence to a system that is the problem... at any rate, Therrien is the best one to be making those decisions. Have to attribute the recall of Ouellet to the same thing.
For better (hopefully) or worse, Therrien is making his impact on the team.
