Pez Ain’t Going Anywhere

August 18, 2008
NA! NA! NA! NA! NA! NA!

NA! NA! NA! NA! NA! NA!

With rumors of Pez possibly going back to Europe and not playing for the Penguins, Pez has denied the rumors in a Finish article.

The article is in Finnish so if you can read that, then go right ahead….

“I’m going there (Pittsburgh) in the beginning of September and with an approach that I’m going to make the team.”Some rumours say that the salary is 600-800k and 100k in AHL.

 

If something doesn’t go well in NA he has a clause in the contract and he can return to Europe.

“It’s kind of a back port if things go bad there” says Pesonen.

I’ve been following Pittsburgh’s lineup. Tough/great bunch of older and younger players.

No surprise at all. The article that was posted about Pez was obviously a rumor on a RUMOR SITE. It was just something that was made up to ‘stir the pot’, I guess you can say.

Hopefully we can put this rumor to rest and forget about it. We don’t need a silly distraction like this to start the season.

I’m pumped to see Pez this year, whether it’s down in WBS or in Pittsburgh. If he can be as good as his videos on youtube, he should be on Crosby’s line in no time (though I doubt he’ll be able to transition his game that quickly).

OH NOES!!!…NOT!

Quick Penguins rumor: A NHL source has told me there are some whispers coming out of Europe that Janne Pesonen is considering a return to Europe. I’ve contacted some of my Penguins insiders and even my main source has denied this rumor. Until I hear something different from my Penguins sources, I would still count on seeing Pesonen in camp. FWI– a emailer has contacted me and said Pesonen is off the NHL.com roster. It probably means nothing.

TIOPS (The Insider on Pittsburgh Sports) is reporting that Janne Pesonen is having doubts on playing with the Penguins and going back to Europe.

Now for the people who see this and thinking “OMGZ PESONEN MAY NOT PLAY FOR THE PENGUINZ”….don’t worry about it, Pesonen ain’t going anywhere.

Why would Pez (let’s call him Pez) decide to go back to Europe when Penguins camp hasn’t even started yet? Don’t you think that he’d give it a chance before heading back over? Plus he just recently signed with the Penguins so don’t ya think that it’d be odd for Pez to change his mind ‘like that’? I call BS.

For the people that didn’t read the whole ‘rumor article’ if that’s what you want to call it, you can tell the author/site contradicts himself.

He first says “A NHL source has told me there are some whispers coming out of Europe that Janne Pesonen is considering a return to Europe.” Then he says “I’ve contacted some of my Penguins insiders and even my main source has denied this rumor.” After that he continues to say, “Until I hear something different from my Penguins sources, I would still count on seeing Pesonen in camp.”

HUH?! So first off he says that he hears that Pesonen is going back to Europe then says his main source hasn’t said anything about Pez leaving. A bunch of BS if you ask me.

Plus this site has a bad reputation in reporting rumors and such. I’ll believe it if I see it in the “Pittsburgh Post-Gazette” or a REAL source/site.

Pez is staying in Pittsburgh folks, don’t worry.
