Jussi's been great, he's just a little lost in the depth chart right now. Don't need him for the top 6 (he's not Crosby or Malkin), Vitale is more effective in a 4th line role because he's faster, more physical and wins roughly the same number of faceoffs.

If you float around Pens circles enough, you'll find at least some people that want to bump Sutter out for JJ (not endorsing that, just mentioning it), so it's not like anybody's been displeased with his work since coming here.

Like Beau Bennett, he's just a victim of too much depth right this second.
