Taffe waived - 10-8-08

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

The Penguins waived forward Jeff Taffe and demoted forward Janne Pesonen and goaltender John Curry to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Kris Beech was put on unconditional waivers.

Also, hopefully you didn't preorder that Paul Bissonnette jersey already. He changed his number from No. 67 to No. 16.

Kind of surprising move on Taffe. Not that he was a lock to even dress every night, but he's a type of player who offered them a lot of versatility among all three forward positions. And he was always seemed to be the default injury replacement for the second power play unit. Perhaps Ray Shero is scanning the waiver wire...
