    seems like he's been doing well (offensive numbers wise) in Hartford. From what we've seen of him up here though, I'm not convinced he's NHL caliber. No real two-way game. Wouldn't trust him with anything more than a few minutes a night on the 4th line. But who knows? Maybe the confidence of putting up almost a point per game in the AHL will give him a boost at this level.

    also he's an upcoming RFA. Maybe they want to give him one more look before deciding if he's worth making an offer and keeping in the organization. Or doing him him a solid and giving him a chance to prove that some NHL team might give him a chance when we let him go

    The prototypical tweener. Can play well in the AHL but can't hang in the NHL. I'm with Lt. Dan here...congrats on the promotion because it will not help win games.

    Must have been difficult to pick which underperformer to call up. Hartford is pathetic... as usual.

    He's ill suited for 4th line duty and is not likely to do anything in that context that will earn him a promotion to a line that plays more. As the season winds down, if it becomes apparent that he won't be offered a contract as an RFA, I hope they don't waste ice time on him. Perhaps he should get one last chance on a scoring line for five or six games before a decision is made to part ways.

    Couldn't agree more. There is literally nothing in Lettieri's game that suggests he should be called up to play on the 4th line. Either play him on a scoring line or call up someone who fits the job description.

    Guy still evokes a ‘shoot first’ approach to his game. That should become contagious on this team.

    I would be pretty pissed if I was Lettieri and got called up only to be healthy scratched before getting sent back down. Pretty shitty message to send to a player.

    Why? That is exactly Lettieri's role in the organization as a fringe player. It'd only be shitty if they did it to a kid waiting to make his NHL debut.
