When @DougMaclean was GM in Columbus, he drafted Sestito."He can play. I'd sign him if I were Edmonton."

At least Sestito does not have to worry about Kassian now, except during practices... :lol:

It is true that Kassian does not need fight as much as he would have with Volpatti gone.

Sestito, 34GP, 4g 3a -6 159PIM
Volpatti, 54GP, 3g, 1a -3 81PIM

Sestito seems to be more of an offensive threat than Volpatti :lol: He scored his first and second NHL goals against the Canucks (Luongo and Schneider). What a relief for our goalies!

Sestito kind of reminds me of Momesso...

Sestito tore his groin on the play so he's probably a better fighter than he appears in that clip.

Looking through hockeyfights.com it looks like he is a pretty safe bet to beat middleweights and will probably draw or lose to heavies like Lucic or Stu Bickel (a guy he's fought twice and lost both times).

Sestito, 25, has played in seven games this season, which included a huge effort in a Feb. 5 win over the Lightning. The rugged forward scored both goals in a 2-1 victory — the first two-goal game of his career.

McKnuckledragger was immediately assigned the Doc's local.

Does the waiver claim mean he must be kept on the roster the remainder of the season?

Another American on the roster. We now have 8, does that lead the NHL? We have 10 Canadians, but Barker and Pinner have never actually played a game for us.

Is it time to start a USA, USE, USA chant at Rogers?
