Tom Sestito and Ben Holmstrom

RT @davegisaac: Source tells me Tom Sestito and Ben Holmstrom will be called up for tomorrow's game against Boston. Sestito certainly for physical play.

Really need to fire Holmgren and get a GM that lives in the 21st century.

Why is this so bad? Do you really want the Bruins to pound the living daylights out of everyone, because I assure you, they will.

It would be stupid not to bring up a physical player who can dish out his fair share of hits.

I would rather them take all the penalties, the Flyers go 3-14 on the PP, and win.

Akeson or Wellwood.

Yes because the Bruins physicality always leads to penalties right?

Boston is right in the middle of the pack regarding times being shorthanded. Considering they are much more physical than the Flyers, yet the Flyers have taken much more penalties, I can assume that their is no direct correlation between penalties and their physicality.

Dressing Sestito only makes sense

Bruins operate under the assumption that the officials can't call all the cheap shots. When they get called, they lose.

If the Flyers stay disciplined tomorrow, they'll win the game. If Sestito plays, then he'll give them at least 1 or 2 free PP cracks, which could easily cost the team the game.

If Sestito could play like he did against Dallas, he's a solid energy player as far as call ups go. I wouldn't have minded Wellwood though.

RT @PSPhantoms Ben Holmstrom and Tom Sestito scratched here tonight. And the worst kept secret ends.

I'd rather call up a scorer like Akeson or Wellwood or something. If Shelley was a capable enforcer, we wouldn't feel the need to call up Sestito.

Part of the reason Shelley needs to GTFO. The other is he just sucks at hockey.

I have no problem with them calling up Sestito for the Bruins. They need the extra physical play against them imo.

I like the moves. We don't need to get dominated by Boston again. Hopefully Sestito can help get some energy and physical play going for us, and I don't think that will be a problem.
