Good.
Minimal $$$

Good stuff. I like Peluso and have been a big supporter of him since Chevy claimed him last year. I think he'll carve himself out a nice role as a Winnipeg Jet.

DespoticNewt 07-22-2013 09:20 PM

Two signings in one day! It's Second Christmas!

Liked what I saw in Peluso last year. He knew he couldn't come up and just be a fighter, and he actually played well. Good outlet passes, and went to the net. Noel even put him on the PP lol

fergiesbeak 07-22-2013 09:30 PM

Good signing. Gonna need him more thanever in the new division.

bigplay41 07-22-2013 09:34 PM

Hopefully he doesn't break his hand on someone's face this year lol

Bogosian 07-22-2013 09:34 PM

I'm really happy about this signing, great! Nothing against "The Nose", but Peluso seems to be an upgrade.

I agree, I've been a fan since he showed up here. Glad he's back for 2 more years.

I hope he brings more of this:

Very happy to have Peluso back!

2 minutes for being bigger than Rinaldo. What a bad call.

Glad to see him back - I think the big dude actually might have some hockey in him. Hope he chooses his spots, and we actually get to see him play.

Still don't see how Rinaldo didn't get a penalty on that play... much dirtier hit than Peluso's.

Sweech 07-22-2013 10:07 PM

I gotta say I was wrong about this pickup. When we claimed him I thought he was purely a plug. Turns out he's got the full physical package and can skate quite well too.

Don't ever expect him to put up 10+ points, but he's shown that he can bring exactly what you want for a 4th liner or 13th forward.

They always call the retaliation.

Rinaldo is such a little ****. ****ing hate that guy.

Jet 07-22-2013 10:12 PM

Excited to see where Peluso can take his game. Already an upgrade on Thor

Reed Solomon 07-22-2013 10:16 PM

I have no opinion one way or another. But hope he does good.

Snot Rocket 07-22-2013 10:24 PM

I like this kid, and I think he has good hands when he is not breaking one trying to punch through the back of someone's skull.
I hope that shows a little more of what he can do skill wise, as we already know what he can do with the fists. Be nice to get a solid grinder that can find the back of the net on occasion.

Got a feeling this kid might exceed expectations. (At least I really want him to)

truck 07-22-2013 10:29 PM

I assume the deal is 2-way.

Two years also seems like a leap of faith, but I am don't really have an opinion one way or another.

wpgsilver 07-22-2013 10:30 PM

My favourite signing this off season.
Perhaps an exaggeration, but I'm thrilled.

I've been firmly planted at the head of the Tony P. fan club since we picked him up off waivers. Initially it was pretty baseless. I took a flyer on him and stood up or the acquisition hen the negative nellies came out. Ever since that point he's been my boy.
Turned out he had a role on the team, which only made me like him more.

Gm0ney 07-22-2013 10:34 PM

I missed Peluso's entire on-ice career with the Jets while I was away for two weeks this winter. He must have been pretty good to earn such a diehard fan club here. I look forward to seeing him contribute next season.

What a two weeks though! :laugh:

allan5oh 07-22-2013 10:52 PM

I'm pretty sure that Philly game was his first game, I was there and you could tell everyone was jacked. But it was clear the refs had one thing in mind - sending a message. IIRC Peluso was stapled to the bench in the 3rd.

drumzan 07-22-2013 11:00 PM

Love this. Hope he unseats THOR.

abax44 07-22-2013 11:34 PM

He's one of those guys that other teams are aware of and I think maybe even a little fearful of. I never seen that with Thorburn.
