Didn’t Niemi have a good run with Chicago? Don’t really feel too bad for him.

Let’s see what DeSmith has.

Just watch his progressive film from past 5 yrs.....falling off a cliff eventually comes

His play this year wouldn't pass muster in the old uhl....which was a glorified men's league

Figured it would be DeSmith. Been playing pretty well. Jarry has not.

True, but I don't think DeSmith is an NHL level goalie. But maybe it wasn't about that and moreso ensuring Jarry got some work.

I think you're absolutely right, Donnie. A) Jarry needs more games period, record notwithstanding. Wasn't going to get that backing up MM. B) Taking a guy struggling a little at the AHL level and bringing him up to the big show is a developmental no-no, as well. Pens have been very smart with their young talent the last several years, and this is yet another example.
