Sestito pulls hair (see Prust fight) so he's a much better fit than Volpatti....

but really, if Pinizzotto can play at the nhl level effectively it's all good. He can hit as hard as Volpatti and is a gamer (Volpatti's a better fighter though)

still think Volpatti-Lapierre-Pinizzotto would be sick though

Does MG even know or care what the Canucks fans want? No fan wants to see their team as a team that is soft, MG has no respect for the fans at all....FU MG, the fans are your customers, your boss!


Ah, there you are! LOL

And your feelings now that Gillis replaced a 6'1" 200lbs goon with a 6'5" 228lbs goon? At least be consistent and even-handed in your evaluation of the product Gillis puts on the ice.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Lol, Gillis is lucky he went on waivers, or there would be a lot of angry fans still including moi. I'll give Sestito a chance though, as long as he hits like a truck I'm excited, not too impressed with his fighting ability though.

Or he read the tea leaves regarding Philly's roster situation (ie 31 players on the roster, the recent acquisition of one Simon Gagne and the effectiveness of Rinaldo & Zolnierczyk). Or he could've chosen not to put in a claim at all and recalled Vandemeer instead.

One way or the other, you have to give him credit if you are a proponent of this team getting more size on the roster. Otherwise it's a hypocritical stance. Having said that, it really doesn't matter.

Yeah, having him and Zack on the team now better make the boys play harder and more gritty.

Didn't realize Volpatti was 27. I always though he was younger.

Well we got younger by adding Sestito then.

Sestito would be the perfect guy to bring into those MMA classes with Kassian/Weise/Pinnizotto. Kassian can give some fighting tips to Sestito and they can all be better fighters.

I watch games that don't involve the Canucks.

Well that's even worse then. Sestito can't play a lick.

Still an upgrade over Volpatti.

People are overrating Volpatti on here. He's a pretty one dimensional player.

The crying on here is almost unbelievable, but not quite .. size DOES matter .. we just got bigger, and with Sestito and Kass we can be much harder to play against .. let us not be so damn quick to judge .. I once helped my Mom with her class of slow Grade 2's and 3's .. who knew so many of them would join CDC .. :towel:

check out the results of Volpatti's first fight in against the Winnipeg Jets as a Washington Capital.
great heart from Patti but not big enough for the role we needed him to fill here.
Sestito ? only time will tell.

Volpatti got owned against Peluso, who's not even really a fighter.

And some people are saying Sestito is a punching bag?

LOL yes he is.

Guy is a beast, who also destroyed Barch a couple games ago. 6'3 235 and only 23.

Absolutely, totally owned in every way. Volpatti is no longer a Canuck for a reason.

That's good, but it still proves that we needed an upgrade.

We need our guys to be able to handle NHL tough guys, not to struggle against AHL scrubs.

Took CDC 1 period to turn on Volpatti because he, a middleweight hitter, took on a heavyweight goon and lost badly.

Sounds about right.

Who says anyone turned on him? Just saying he got worked in his first fight with new team.

Sad to see. He won't be able to handle the big heavy weights in the east.

The funny thing is, CDC only seemed to love Volpatti once he was gone.

I thought he was a good fill in guy that played with heart, but I was always hoping we would do something to upgrade that spot.

HAHA for those saying Sestito is a punching bag.

For everyone crying about patti gone, get a grip especially that tool Bodee. 4th line plugs are a dime a dozen.

You have to love Volpatti's heart but fighting Murray, Reaves and Peluso now. I fear for his health, he should stick to his weight class.

Good luck in Washington Aaron

The Caps are playing the Bruins on Tuesday, who do you think Volpatti will fight?

Campbell?
McQuaid?
MacDermid?
