Tostitos new item on the menu...

I don't know what it is about Sestito, but I love this guy. Not only is he 7 feet tall, but he can actually hit and not look completely lost out there.

Can we dump Shelley and Rinaldo for this guy and gain some cap room? He's a tank!

Not Rinaldo. He's been playing very well and he makes a great line mate for Sestito. I would absolutely love to see Shelley waived at this point though.

Let's not hope to get rid of Rinaldo just yet.. He had a better game than Sestito last night, and Sestito has only played one game with us.

What's your reasoning for getting rid of Rinaldo? He's been playing hard every game so far.

I'm all for dumping Shelley in favor of Testito. I think he would have made the team had it not been for that suspension. Rinaldo should stay though. He's fun to watch and has played very well for what he is being asked to do.

Wait, what? Get rid of Rinaldo? Are you crazy? How do you not love this kid?

I do like Sestito's game, though. He's perfect as a bottom-9 guy -- he's HUGE, physical and can goon it up but also has underrated offensive skill (14 points in 24 games with the Phantoms; 32 points in 46 games with Springfield last season, to go along with 2 goals and 2 assists in 9 games with Columbus). I'm hoping he sticks. Sestito and Rinaldo on the same line? Yes, please.

He's not a very good fighter. I doubt he turns into a legit heavyweight

With that being said, he still brings more to the team than Shelley

Sestito is not a very good hockey player. To say hes better then Shelley is like saying Yuengling is better beer then Old Milwaukee.

Shelley never, and could never, do offensively what Sestito has done in the AHL. Shelley has no where near the talent that Sestito does.

You've obviously never watched him play then

He's put up points in junior and the AHL. And while he hasnt player many games in the NHL yet, he put up 4 points in 9 games last year with the BJs

14 points in 24 games this year with the Phantoms

he's a much better hockey player than Shelley

4 points in 9 games. guess that means hes automaticly a 40 point player in the NHL

I dont care what he does in the AHL. Lots of scrubs tore the AHL up and couldnt do jack in the NHL. the list is long.

He's played 1 game for us, and you're already going to write him off?

He played over 10 mins last game too. How many times has Shelley took a regualr shift and logged over 10 minutes? Even hte coach knows he brings more to the team than Shelley

LOL I am not writing him off. I just dont get worked up over a frindge NHL player getting called up.
Shelley sucks, I think everyone realizes this. But I am not getting worked up over the guy. Hes played 1 NHL game for us and there is a thread on the guy.

you clearly stated that Sestito is not a very good hockey player and is not better than Shelley

now you just stated that Shelley sucks, but since according to you Shelley > Sestito, that's pretty much a write off considering how Shelley is god awful and shouldnt be in the NHL

Just sayin' he didn't register a point in the 6 games he played so I don't think Sestito will do any better

I am not scrolling up to look what I typed. but i would never say Shelley is better then Sestito. if I did it was obviously a type.
ok I looked. you think Old Milwaukee is better then Yuengling?
My point was its not a saying much that a AHL call up is better then Jody Shelley.
