Yeah, it's cheesy, but I couldn't resist after seeing that State Farm ad with a corpsified-looking Bob Barker twenty times during the Independence Bowl last night.
According to Vivlamore and Ben Wright, Patrice Cormier has been called up from the Wolves and Tim Stapleton has been sent back down in his place.
In just 11 games in the AHL this season, Cormier has 2 goals and 3 assists for 5 points and is a +8 on a team where that ties him for second on the team to Spencer Machacek's +11 earned over 34 games.
Perhaps the rest of the team has fallen into despair from having to listen to Patrice Cormier and Spencer Machacek's endless "I'm a PC, I'm a Mac" jokes.
We'll get to see soon how well Rick Dudley's assessment of Cormier's potential has been. He was right about Byfuglien the defenseman, he was right about Andrew Ladd. Perhaps PC can inject the "spark" that Bergfors has been lacking.
