Looks like Vigneault will ride out the Torres/Malhotra duo regardless of how little chemistry they show.

They called up the wrong guy. Hopefully it only takes 2 games to figure this out.
I would wager that Sweatt would get a look on the 2nd or 3rd line if there's an injury, but that's not what this call up was for. AV and MG--IMO--want a big, physical body on the fourth line, especially for the Calgary game. Volpatti showed decently, but now is the time they want to get a look at Oreskovich. Skating and hitting are his big calling cards.
