Penguins tough guy Steve MacIntyre has been sent back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL after being called up for Saturday’s game versus the Flyers.

MacIntrye played 8:37 against Philadelphia and Sidney Crosby wasn’t attacked with a homemade shiv during the meaningless season finale, so mission accomplished for the big protector.

    Well, it’s a Penguins article, so bring on the screaming from Pens fans and haters alike! :D

    I suspect that MacIntyre will be called up “on an emergency basis” during the Fuffle with Philly more than once. If you want to win a staged bout then he’s the guy to have on your side. If you want to win a hockey game then you might not want to give up the roster space.

    It’s nice to see that Pittsburgh has overtaken Vancouver (for the time being) as the most hated, dirty, whiners, divers, etc., etc., team in the NHL.

    All I can say is that every team – every team (including our own favourite, whichever that might be) – has players other teams’ fans can point to as “evidencing” that that team embodies all those despicable, cowardly things that their team is free from. Mmm-hmm.
