A little disappointed Archibald got sent down, but I'm sure injuries will give him the opportunity to get signed to a contract and come up. Looking forward to the start of the season.

Can't have any toughness in the line up except Guddy now, it makes him necessary and look more important when most fans will over look the skill level vs the toughness factor. He is all they have now.

Wow, I must have been sleeping through exhibition season. I am totally unaware of Pouliot. Anyone share a brief bio?

23 years old, former 8th overall pick. Has hit a bit of a wall in development with the Penguins. Good reclamation project.
