Well, Sydor is experienced, seems to want to play in St Louis...and importantly, the players seem to want him there. If, as has been reported, he's become a bit of a mentor for Pietrangelo, then that's all to the good.
So, Pietrangelo on a 9 game trial, you think? Can you really see him being sent back to Juniors? What can he learn there anymore? Sometimes I think you have to take a chance on a guy. He's done well so far and yes, he'll make mistakes, but that's how you learn.
