6-5 winger. Decent nhl stats for a 4th line plug. Awesome pick up. Will still miss Volpati, but still. We'll take it.

Well there goes the belief that Volpatti was sent down to free up a roster space.

If we can pick someone else up, it means we sent him down because we thought we could do better.

Sestito isn't really much different... bigger version, not a an accomplished fighter though... at least as a heavyweight.

Now we know maybe why GMMG was in Philly a couple of weeks back?

Well, at least now a good portion of CDC will shut up about it.

Interesting. Haven't seen many Sestito fights except for the Kassian one where he got worked.

What was the point of waiving Volpatti in the first place then? I do like that Sestito has slightly more offensive skill than Volpatti and I know he can do the job to bang bodies like Volpatti but there really is no difference aside from him being 6'5.

Good to see us not replace Volpatti with a midget.

Looks like we replaced Volpatti's toughness.

Leighton and Wandell cleared Waivers. Sestito awarded to Van from Phil.

Just talked with Tom Sestito's agent -he says his client happy to be picked up by Vancouver - sad to leave Philly..
